Apparently she became unresponsive during some sort of "throat procedure".

Is every older celeb going to die this year? I certainly hope not.

Hamas has released a statement saying they are going to send a rather large bouquet of flowers to the hospital, but they are recommending everyone but Joan will have to vacate the area.

Shit. What the hell was the procedure anyway? Because it seems hardly routine to have caused all this.

It was something on her vocal chords.

The last update was at 8 am this morning saying she was "resting comfortably." seems an odd way to say coma

some sort of vocal cord surgery.
When you're that old any procedure with anesthetic can be risky.

This marks the first time in history that Joan Rivers was actually speechless.

Too soon?

Joan Rivers On Life Support But Family Still Hopeful
8/30/2014 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joan Rivers is on life support ... and sources close to the legendary comedian tell TMZ she is completely reliant on machines to stay alive.

According to our sources, the family will have to decide in the next couple of days whether to keep the 81-year-old on life support. We're told the family remains hopeful that if they do decide to turn off the machines, she will make a turn for the better and fight through it.

As TMZ first reported, Rivers was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing during throat surgery on Thursday.
Probably not good.

The Rivers family has requested Eddie Money's presence, doesn't bode well.

Re: Joan Rivers - rushed to the hospital in critical condition (UPDATE: ??)

Just wondering, if she's in a medically induced coma and the doctor's bring her out of the coma, wouldn't she be able to breathe on her own then assuming she's conscious?
