Joan Rivers Placed in Medically Induced Coma (Report)

Joan Rivers has reportedly been placed in a medically induced coma after complications during a surgery on Thursday morning (August 28) in New York City.

The 81-year-old comedian stopped breathing and went into cardiac and respiratory arrest while a doctor was checking on a chronic problem with her vocal cords.

“They don’t know how long she was starved of oxygen,” a source told the New York Daily News.

Doctors expect to bring Joan out of the coma this weekend to evaluate if there has been any damage.

Joan‘s daughter Melissa Rivers rushed onto a flight out of Los Angeles to be by her mother’s side during this scary time. We hope she has a speedy recovery!
