It was a case of life imitating art for Australian actor Chris Hemsworth when he and his family had to be rescued by Spanish coastguards in the Atlantic Ocean.

Hemsworth, his wife Elsa Pataky and their 18-month-old daughter India Rose were among eight passengers on a catamaran when it ran aground off the coast of La Gomera, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, UK newspaper The Daily Mail reports.

According to media reports a lifeboat, a Civil Guard patrol boat  and a helicopter were sent to rescue the group.

No one was injured.

Hemsworth is currently filming Ron Howard’s movie, Heart of the Sea, in the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa.

It’s understood Hemsworth and Pataky, who is reportedly three  months pregnant, were on a private catamaran hired by the film’s production company to take them to Playa de Santiago.

The Heart of the Sea is about the sinking of a whaling ship in  the Pacific in 1820. The sinking of the Essex went on to inspire  the tale of Moby Dick.

Hemsworth plays the vessel’s first mate Owen Chase.
