Former Baywatch legend David Hasselhoff has revealed that he has used his fame to help heal children, including bringing a young boy out of a coma. The actor, singer and talent show judge made the revelation as he was being interviewed for a radio show for the BBC in the UK.
He told host Richard Bacon, "The upside of being in showbiz is being able to hold the hand of a kid who is dying, you know. "I did a tape for a kid saying, 'Hey buddy, it's Michael Knight, Michael Knight, come on, wake up, wake up, wake up'.” The Hoff continued, The phone rang and they said, 'Remember that kid you did the tape for that was hit at that crosswalk in London? Well we played the tape for him and he came out of the coma'."
‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge David Hasselhoff then added, "I don't want to be corny or anything but that's happened to me a thousand times all around the world because it can affect people in a positive way.” He is currently in the process of promoting ‘The Hasselhoffs’, a reality TV series about his family.
