Comedienne Joan Rivers has reportedly been placed in a medically-induced coma after suffering cardiac and respiratory failure during a medical procedure on Thursday (28Aug14).

Rivers was getting her vocal cords checked at a clinic in New York when she started fighting for breath.

She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital and placed in a coma as members of her family were alerted to her condition.

The New York Daily News reports doctors will take the 81 year old out of the coma this weekend (30-31Aug14) and assess any damage.

Her aide Graham Reed told the Daily News, "She’s not conscious, but she’s stable."

Initial reports suggested Rivers was in a critical condition.

A spokesman for the hospital has released a brief statement, which reads: "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 comedienne's daughter Melissa has reportedly flown to New York from her home in California to be at her mother's bedside.
