The Hoff praises Bury river rescue PC Mohammed Nadeem

The Hoff praises Bury river rescue PC Mohammed Nadeem”

David Hasselhoff is hoping to meet with a hero police officer who's been nicknamed "The Hoff" for his bravery during a river rescue.

PC Mohammed Nadeem jumped eight feet into the fast-moving River Irwell to pull the man from the water on Saturday.

Hasselhoff, who also starred in 80s television series Knight Rider, praised the student officer, dubbing Pc Nadeem as "the new Hoff".

The student police officer showed nerves of steel to courageous the bracing temperatures of the River Irwell to assist a man in distress, thus earning himself the nickname "The Hoff" by colleagues.

PC Nadeem said he "just had to" jump in to save the man when he saw him in distress, even though he can not swim.

Hasselhoff, who has seen video of the rescue, said: "The real heroes are the ones who act on instinct without hesitation, the ones who believe that we all can help each other".

Police in England have released bodycam footage of the moment an officer bravely leapt into bone-chilling water over the weekend to save a man in distress.

The man was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to hospital to receive treatment.

"I am very happy and proud to be a police officer and I am proud of what I have done, saving someone's life, it's a great feeling".

PC Nadeem said he was looking forward to meeting the "original Hoff".

"As with any incident that we respond to, the safety of the public is our No. 1 priority and sometimes that means putting them first, ahead of your own safety", Superintendent Rick Jackson of GMP's Bury Borough said.

"It's great that the work of GMP officers has been appreciated in such a huge way", he said.
