Legendary comedian since the 1960’s, TV host and fashion critic, Joan Rivers died today at Mt. Sinai hospital in New York City. She was 81 years old.

Her daughter Melissa Rivers released a statement: “It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers,” according to
NBCnews.com.

Melissa Rivers said in her statement, “She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother. Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.”

Rivers had been undergoing surgery on her vocal chords at Yorkville Endoscopy on East 93rd Street, on August 28, 2014, when she stopped breathing and was rushed to the hospital. Her daughter Melissa Rivers immediately flew to New York from Los Angeles, CA, to be by her side.

Joan Rivers remained in a medically induced coma in the intensive care unit (ICU) on life support and was eventually moved to a private room when her condition was more stable.

Melissa stated, “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
