David Hasselhoff was rushed to a hospital by ambulance Friday after suffering a seizure, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Hasselhoff’s neighbor Christian (he asked that we not use his last name), told RadarOnline.com that he saw the ambulance arrive at Hasselhoff’s home. “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.” Unfortunately, said Christian, “this isn’t the first time this has happened to him.”
Hasselhoff, who has a long history of alcoholism, had been drinking in the past two days. Sources also tell RadarOnline.com that the former Baywatch star has been on anti-seizure medication.
He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after the seizure. A source on the scene said it was David’s daughter Hayley who called 911.
“Paramedics were called to the (address omitted) in Encino for medical aid,” Los Angeles City Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott told RadarOnline.com. “Paramedics arrived at approximately 11:51 am and later transported the patient a nearby hospital.”
RadarOnline.com has also learned that Hasselhoff saw one of his doctors after returning from Canada on Wednesday.
And while the star has a long history of alcoholism he has consistently denied he was drunk during several incidents that have landed him in the hospital in the past few years. RadarOnline.com has reported exclusively that Hasselhoff has been hospitalized for alcohol poisoning more than five times in the past few years.
His lawyers and public relations people have denied the reports but Hasselhoff went on another bender after the MTV awards in Europe this year and landed in a hospital. Hasselhoff was drinking both before and after Thanksgiving before suffering the seizure that landed him in the hospital.
