Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Thanks Medics For Helping His Baby Daughter

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is genuinely one of the most likeable actors out there - so when someone helps him, you can be sure he'll let people know about it.

It's no surprise then that he's taken to Instagram to deliver a shout-out to the 911 operator and medics who helped him during a medical emergency involving his two-year-old daughter Jasmine.


In his Instagram vid, The Rock explained that he had to call 911 this past Saturday night after 'something scary' happened to his daughter Jasmine.

Although he doesn't specify what happened exactly, it's clear that it was serious enough that he needed help over the phone on how to treat her until the first responders showed up.

"Things got a lil' hairy this weekend. Thank you LAFD first responders and UCLA medical team. We're grateful to you all and if you ever need anything, I got your back," he captioned the vid.

Dwayne added that after Jasmine was taken to hospital, the family spent the whole night in the emergency room with her, and thankfully she's doing OK now.

However, being the great guy that he is, The Rock didn't want to get on with things without saying thanks to everyone who helped his family out. He truly is The People's Champ.

"I just want to say thank you so much to everybody that was involved - so caring and compassionate and responsive," he said, before running through them:

"The 911 operator who was on the phone with me who was extremely calm walking me through some processes; the Los Angeles fire department first responders; the UCLA medical team and staff; the doctors; the nurses. Again, everybody, thank you guys so so much."

The Rock concluded his vid by advising parents to 'stay as calm and as focused as possible' in emergencies like these so as not to scare their kids too much.

It's been a tricky week for the Brahma Bull, who humbly accepted the Razzie Award for the film reboot of Baywatch on Monday.

The movie was so bad award-givers saw fit to let it win in its own category of 'The Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It' - a back-handed compliment if ever there was one.

Thanking the panel, Dwayne said that everyone who made Baywatch did so 'with the best intentions and it didn't work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie'.

Glad to hear that Jasmine is doing OK now.
