Former 'Baywatch' star David Hasselhoff was rushed to an hospital with alcohol poisoning.

The 56-year-old actor was found unconscious by his 16-year-old daughter Hayley at his home in Encino, California, RadarOnline.Com reported.

Hayley reportedly called his ex-wife Pamela Bach, who drove the actor to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills on Saturday night, where doctors "saved his life".

The actor, who has had a series of alcohol related problems, was registered with a .39 alcohol level, four times the legal limit for driving in California.

Hasselhoff was "barely breathing when they got him to the hospital," a source told the celebrity website.

"He's recovering. Pam was at his bedside till 4am this morning. This is about the seventh time he's been taken to a hospital over the last few years with alcohol poisoning," the source said.
