Joan Rivers is ''resting comfortably'' after she stopped breathing during surgery yesterday (28.08.14).
The 'Fashion Police' star's daughter Melissa Rivers has offered an update on her 81-year-old mother's health following the scare during what was said to be a routine outpatient procedure on her vocal chords at a clinic in Manhattan, New York.
In a statement obtained by E! News, Melissa said: ''I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.''
Joan was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in New York after she stopped breathing during an endoscopy procedure and was said to be in a critical but stable condition.
Melissa, 46, arrived in New York to be with her hospitalised mother yesterday along with her 13-year-old son Cooper.
The ageing comedienne was said to be in high spirits just the night before the incident on Wednesday (27.08.14) when she attended an event to promote her new book.
A source said: ''She was so lively and sweet. She even let people take photos with her. She definitely had a lot of energy! She was cracking jokes about everyone from Jay Leno to Jackie O. She was as sharp as she's ever been.''
