Former "Baywatch" star David Hasselhoff was admitted to a hospital Nov 27 after suffering a seizure.
Imdb.com reports, the star's daughter, Hayley, called emergency services when her father fell ill and he was taken to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance for treatment.
"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," said Hasselhoff's neighbour Christian.
Added a spokesperson for the LA City fire department: "Paramedics were called to (a house) in Encino for medical aid. Paramedics arrived at approximately 11:51 a.m. and later transported the patient to 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 Nov 25 after returning from a trip to Canada.
Hasselhoff was admitted to rehab in October this year amid reports he accidentally hit a doctor during a booze binge. He has also been hospitalised on two separate occasions this year, after reportedly suffering alcohol poisoning.
