Tart-tongued comedian Joan Rivers was rushed to a Manhattan hospital Thursday morning after she stopped breathing during an operation, a family source told the Daily News.
“We are scared,” the source said. “This is not looking good. No big medical decisions will be made until (daughter) Melissa arrives.”
An assistant to the renowned comic was overheard saying that Rivers was inside the Mount Sinai Hospital after arriving a short time earlier.
“She’s not conscious, but she’s stable,” said an obviously distraught Graham Reed, the comedian’s aide. Reed refused to provide any details when approached by a reporter.
The hospital released a brief statement confirming Rivers was at the facility.
“Her family wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support,” said hospital spokesman Sid Dinsay. “We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available.”
The family source said friends were gathering Thursday inside Rivers’ apartment.
“She would want us all to laugh,” the source said. “But at the moment, we are all praying.”
Sounds like so scary isht, hopefully her condition will improve throughout the day.
