* HASSELHOFF HOSPITALISED
DAVID HASSELHOFF was admitted to hospital on Friday (27Nov09) after suffering a seizure, according to a new U.S. report.
RadarOnline.com claims the Baywatch star’s daughter, Hayley, called emergency services when her father fell ill.
The actor was reportedly taken to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance for treatment.
Hasselhoff’s neighbour, named only as Christian, tells the website, “I asked one of the paramedics how David was doing and he told me his eyes were rolling back into his head, he was drooling and that he’d had a seizure. This isn’t the first time this has happened to him.”
A spokesperson for the L.A. City Fire Department confirms: “Paramedics were called to (a house) in Encino for medical aid. Paramedics arrived at approximately 11:51 am and later transported the patient a nearby hospital.”
The 57 year old, who has a long history of alcoholism, had allegedly been drinking in the past two days and saw one of his personal doctors on Wednesday (25Nov09) after returning from a trip to Canada.
Hasselhoff was admitted to rehab in October (09) amid reports he accidentally hit a doctor during a booze binge. He has also been hospitalised on two separate occasions this year (09), reportedly suffering from alcohol poisoning. (CL/WNWCDAR/LR)
