 David Hasselhoff Hospitalised for Alcohol Poisoning
Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has been rushed to an L.A. hospital because of alcohol poisoning on May 2.

According to RadarOnline.com, the vodka-guzzling 'America's Got Talent' judge was taken to Cedars-Sinai medical centre after his daughter Hayley, 16, found him unconscious on the floor of his home in Encino, California.

Hayley then called her mom and Hasselhoff's estranged actress Pamela Bach, who lives 10 minutes away in Hollywood, and the duo then drove him to the hospital.

The 56-year-old actor, who has had a history of alcohol problems, was registered with a .39 alcohol level this time round.

While a source had earlier revealed that Hasselhoff was "barely breathing when they got him to the hospital," reports suggest that he is recovering.

"This is about the seventh time he's been taken to a hospital over the last few years with alcohol poisoning," Us magazine quoted the source as saying.

According to TMZ, Hasselhoff's rep, Judy Katz, said the star was "fine and well and happy and is celebrating his father Joe Hasselhoff's 80th birthday tonight at dinner ... along with his girlfriend, Kimberly."
