Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has praised emergency services for responding to "something scary" that happened to his two-year-old daughter.

The actor and former WWE star shared a video on Instagram thanking Los Angeles Fire Department and UCLA medical staff after Jasmine was taken to hospital.

"We were up all night in the emergency room, we had something scary that happened with our baby girl Jasmine," he said.

"She's OK now, thank God, but I just want to say thank you to everybody who was involved, so caring, compassionate and responsive.

"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, UCLA medical team and staff, the doctors, the nurses.

"Again, everybody, thank you everybody so, so much."

The 45-year-old movie star did not specify what the medical emergency was, but shared advice for parents.

"To all you mommies and daddies out there when emergencies like this happen, I would just highly recommend that you stay as calm and as focused as possible," he said.

"Because our little babies pick up on what we put out especially in times of stress."
