Matt Damon and his family are currently on vacation in Australia with fellow Hollywood hero Chris Hemsworth; his wife, Elsa Pataky, and their cute brood. But instead of experiencing a relaxing vacation, the Damons had a life-threatening encounter with some Australian wildlife that definitely put a damper in their trip.
Matt Damon’s daughter, Stella, 6, was swimming at the beach when she was stung by a stingray. Ouch! Damon and Hemsworth were forced to call paramedics to tend to little Stella.

TheCourierMail.co.au reported that Stella’s screams could be heard by onlookers before she rushed onto the shore. She was immediately treated by paramedics on the scene and comforted by her parents, Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon.
The Damons have been staying with the Hemsworths in Australia since April 8. Damon's other children, Isabella, Alexia, and Gia, as well as the Hemsworth kids, India, Tristan, and Sasha, attended the beach trip.

The Hemsworth kids, who are currently on a school vacation, were spotted playing in the sand and swimming in the same water where Stella was stung; however, only one child was hurt at the time.
Other than Stella's injury, the Damons had had a nice trip in Australia. Matt and Chris were spotted having breakfast together at a local restaurant and riding horses along the beach with their families.

The two Hollywood hunks have shared a tight friendship since Chris first started acting, so we’re sure Matt probably isn’t holding a grudge against his pal for choosing the beach spot.
We hope the rest of the Damons' trip goes hitch-free and that they enjoy their time in Australia! We can’t even imagine what a scary experience that must have been for the Damon family to endure, but we’re just glad that Stella is okay now!

Do these celeb parents look a bit peeved? If so, it's because their children are engaging in some typical childlike behavior in these (still-adorable!) photos.
