After falling into a critical condition on Thursday, 28 August, and being admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital, comic, Joan Rivers is reportedly in a medical induced coma.
Daughter, Melissa Rivers who flew into Los Angeles from New York, after hearing the news, has released a statement disclosing her mother’s present state, while also thanking well-wishers and fans for their support.
She said, ‘I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,’ Melissa Rivers said in a statement.
‘She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.’
Doctors treating her are reportedly adamant on keeping her in a coma until the weekend, especially because of concerns over the period of time her brain lacked oxygen.
