Actor David Hasselhoff surprised a group of Austrian lifeguard trainees on Saturday when he turned up out of the blue to give them some tips from his Baywatch days.
The 63-year-old Baywatch actor showed up to the Velden water rescue session at the Wörthersee in the Austrian state of Carinthia where he is holidaying.

“Great to see them doing this...and in BAYWATCH colors!” Hasselhoff wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a picture with the young lifeguard trainees.

Streaming live on Facebook, he climbed off his boat and greeted the group of lifeguards. “I'm glad you guys are doing this, my daughters were junior lifeguards,” he says as they are preparing to take a picture.

 
He agreed to take several pictures with the group of junior lifeguards and their trainers before he headed back to his boat.

The actor and singer was in town this weekend for the Glock Horse Show along with many other famous guests, such as John Travolta and Robbie Williams.

Many of the guests stayed at the Schlosshotel in Velden, with several posting selfies from the hotel and the event.

Hasselhoff posted several live videos not only from his surprise visit to the lifeguard training session but also from hotel showing off the view to his followers.

He gets quite nostalgic in his video as he talks about being in the area in 1987 to shoot a television movie with Austrian Producer Karl Spiehs.

 
He will be soon be back in Austria again though because he is going to be one of the headliners of next year's Nova Rock festival.
