David Hasselhoff Rushed To The Hospital

David Hasselhoff was rushed to the hospital due to alcohol poisoning on Saturday (May 2) when his 16-year-old daughter, Hayley, discovered the actor unconscious and on the floor of his home in Encino, Calif.

According to RadarOnline, Hayley then called David‘s estranged ex-wife, actress Pamela Bach, who drove him to Cedars-Sinai for treatment.

The 56-year-old actor has been battling alcoholism for a while. This incident comes 2 years after video footage surfaced of the actor drunk and incoherent on a hotel room floor in Las Vegas.

Gee! Who saw THAT coming :roll:

# 2

not a big surprise. I can’t believe he got custody of the kids. My heart goes out to all of them. I have lived through this myself.

# 3

Get well soon, but why is this guy even relevant anymore?

# 4

Relevant or not, he has an alcohol-abuse problem. It can take YEARS (even decades) to treat this. I wish him luck and hope he finds a treatment program that sees him through the first few years. Alcoholism is rampant in America, especially among men.

get well and get your act together

That’s sad, if it is definitely alcohol poisoning? He doesn’t seem like a drinker to me, Scott Mills recently stayed with him for a reality show and he never mentioned a drinking problem?
Oh well, whether it’s true or not, I wish David and his children a healthy happy future.

# 7

I feel sorry for him because alcohol is one of the most addictive drugs and is really really hard to quit. I hope he gets all the support and treatment he needs.

# 8

I pray that he finds Jesus. He delivered me from alchohol abuse and He can do the same for David.

# 9

It’s so easy to stand in judgement,until you have walked in his shoes.I myself have been up and down with my addiction,and thank my family and friends and most important “divine mercy” for keeping me on the path to sobriety….so to all the uneducated ppl. that just sit there and do nothing to help those who can not help themselves….I say shame on you for not extending a helping hand…and just shut it and leave your hate at the door….God bless you David and the long road ahead I will be there to cheer you on,when you win this battle!

David: Just kick the bucket already. You are damaging your daughters lives!!!!

blaaaaah blaaaah like this is something NEW!

His daughters should not have to see this happen to their father. How irresponsible of him having his daughters over when he is in such a bad state. If he knows he’s prone to drinking that week/month/whatever he should tell them to stay with their mother.

And yes, I know what I’m talking about.

Wow, his daughter sounds like a genius and I guess his ex wanted him to die. 911 needed to be called and they’re ******** around while he’s poisoned…eesh.

Getting drunk is one thing, but getting poisoned POISONED by alcohol is quite another. Perhaps he will need a new stomach?

His Way: What did Jesus do? Lock up the booze or put a mask on your face so you couldn’t drink?

a total fan @ 05/04/2009 at 2:21 pm

I hope he is doing better.

setting the stage for the daughters to be the same as the father in their own more than likely addiction patterns.

this guy is a loser and has thrown his many accomplishments and piossed on them!

has been and shy do we need to read the grim details.

Nefarious @ 05/04/2009 at 6:44 pm

I’m surpised his dumb-ass kid didn’t pick up the camera again to film it like last time. “zzzz” makes a really good point.
