London | Hollywood star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson visited sick children in hospital during a break from shooting Baywatch.

The 43-year-old actor took time out from filming the movie to visit patients in a nearby paediatric ward and was delighted to meet with the youngsters, their families and the staff, reported Female First. He posted on Instagram alongside a picture of himself bumping fists with a young patient, We shot #BAYWATCH scenes at Memorial Health Hospital and thought I’d pop up to the ward. Awesome experience and THANK YOU to all the hard working and caring staff who helped make this visit possible. To all the kids I met – you guys keep smiling and staying strong. All the mamas and daddy’s I met, y’all stay strong too.

The Furious 7 star had production on his movie put on hold so he could also take time to visit a teenager after his mother pleaded with film staff that the former wrestler go see her son, who wasn’t a patient on the children’s ward. While I was visiting the Pediatric Specialty Ward surprising the kids, I got word from my team that there was a mom who was pleading with our production staff, that I go upstairs to her son’s room to give him a much needed big surprise. Since he’s older he’s in the main hospital and not in pediatric care, the actor wrote in another Instagram post.
