David Hasselhoff is convinced he has special healing powers after a motivational message he recorded for a sick young boy helped the youngster come out of a coma.
The Baywatch star is adamant he has saved thousands of lives through positive thinking and recalls one time he spoke in the voice of his Knight Rider character Michael Knight in a bid to help an ill child.
He tells Britain's BBC Radio Five Live, "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 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.'"
"I went, 'Whoa, whoa'. He said, 'We played it once'. I met the kid at the hotel afterwards. 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."
