NEW YORK, Ny. (ABC News) – Joan Rivers was rushed to a New York City hospital in critical condition today after an emergency call that she was in cardiac arrest, according to a law enforcement source.

She was in surgery sources say getting work done on her vocal chords and that is when she went into cardiac arrest.


“This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she is being attended to,” Sid Dinsay, a spokesman for The Mount Sinai Hospital, said in a written statement. “Her family wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support. We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available.”

The New York City Fire Department transported a woman matching Rivers’ description to Mt. Sinai Hospital after receiving a call that the woman was in cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side clinic, Yorkville Endoscopy, an FDNY source said. The law enforcement source confirmed the woman was Rivers.
