(MCT) -- Joan Rivers has been rushed to Manhattanâ€™s Mount Sinai Hospital, New York police said Thursday morning, reportedly after she suffered complications during an outpatient surgery at a nearby doctorâ€™s office.
Emergency medical services brought the veteran stand-up comic and â€śFashion Policeâ€ť star to the hospital from â€śa doctorâ€™s office on 93rd Street,â€ť NYPD Detective Kellyann Ort told the Los Angeles Times. Ort had no comment about Riversâ€™ 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.
Riversâ€™ representative has not yet responded to The Timesâ€™ request for comment.
