Default probability of getting stung in pond?

Just curious, if you have Stingrays in your pond and you need to clean the inside of pond. is there a big chance the stingray will be startled and sting you?
i usually go into the pond to clean the bottom drain which gets clogged by dry leaves,
was thinking if it would be a danger to add stingrray to my pond.

thanks, the leaves get stuck under a big stone so really have to go in. I have a net mesh on the bottom drain to keep tiger barbs from getting sucked into the filter chamber
, bad side is leaves also don't get in .

Bro Squid, I think no need to worry so much... I normally go into my pond to do cleaning and maintenance. I will wear those rubber boots and never bare foots. Of course when we go into the pond, we have to be careful not to step on the rays or the bottom dwellers. I think with that, things should be ok... To me, I feel that all my fishes recognise me and is fun to have them swimming around u. Just my 2cents.
