Yesterday, Joan Rivers was rushed to hospital after she stopped breathing during a surgery she was having on her vocal chords at a New York City clinic. She’s 81, so obviously procedures like this pose a greater danger, and it’s still unclear whether she’s going to be alright, though she is said to be in stable condition. At the moment, she’s apparently in a medically-induced coma and her daughter Melissa has rushed to her side.
“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,” Melissa said in a statement. “She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”
It seems like she had a pretty close call here, as some reports have even said that her heart stopped beating momentarily! Hopefully she’s alright and pulls through this without any lasting damage having been done.
