Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter to offer his condolences to a follower whose mother and sister were tragically killed in a recent car crash.
Aileen Pizarro and her daughter Aryana died last Thursday after their vehicle was hit by a driver going the wrong direction down an interstate.
After their passing, Aileen's son, Angelo Pizarro, took to Twitter to mourn the loss of his mother and sister and reach out to The Rock, writing:"My beautiful mom who passed away loved @TheRock so so so much. I'm trying to get him to do even a video saying her name for the funeral. If you could retweet the crap outta this for him to see it that'd mean the world. Thank you!"
The note received nearly 60,000 retweets and caught the actor's attention. In a video tribute, Johnson said he saw a "flood" of messages about the "devastating loss" and wanted to send along his thoughts.
He said, "So, anyway man, I'm sending you so much love, and light and strength your way from my family to yours. I just want to say thanks for reaching out man. I'm so sorry to hear about your sister and your mom and this tragic loss that you and your family are going through."
Near the end of the video, Johnson seemed to get a bit emotional."If your mom can see me now, which I'm sure she can, I just want to thank her for all the love and being such a big fan. So, stay strong."
Johnson later tweeted the video and wrote, "Least I could do. Story is heartbreaking. Stay strong."
