Joan Rivers hospitalized in NYC, reportedly in critical condition

Joan Rivers has been rushed to Manhattan’s Mount Sinai Hospital, New York police said Thursday morning, reportedly after she suffered complications during an outpatient surgery at a nearby doctor’s office.

Emergency medical services brought the veteran stand-up comic and “Fashion Police” star to the hospital from “a doctor’s office on 93rd Street,” NYPD Detective Kellyann Ort told the Los Angeles Times. Ort had no comment about Rivers’ condition.

Rivers, 81, had been undergoing throat surgery, possibly on her vocal cords, when a 911 call was placed describing a person who was either in cardiac or respiratory arrest, TMZ first reported. She was in critical condition, the website said.

Rivers’ representative has not yet responded to The Times’ request for comment.
