Dwayne Johnson Reveals 'Scary' Incident Sent His 2-Year-Old Daughter to the Emergency Room

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has some good advice for parents whose children have experienced medical emergencies: Stay calm.

The Fate of the Furious actor, 45, revealed in an Instagram video on Tuesday that his 2-year-old daughter, Jasmine, had been taken to the emergency room on Saturday night.

The actor, who frequently posts videos while at the gym after workouts, explained without too much detail about his scare. Representatives for the actor have not commented further about the little girl’s current condition.

“This past Saturday night something happened to me and my family that I would never want to happen to any of your guys out there,” he said. “Of course, emergencies do happen. We were up all night in the emergency room, we had something scary that happened to our little baby girl Jasmine — she’s okay now! — thank God.”
