Joan Rivers is in a critical, but stable, condition after being rushed to hospital in New York City.


A NYPD official told TMZ that at one point Rivers heart stopped beating.

An emergency call was made earlier today saying to the dispatcher that "we have somebody in either cardiac or respiratory arrest".

Rivers suffered complications during throat surgery on her vocal chords.

It has now been revealed that Rivers also went into cardiac arrest after breathing difficulties.

A rep for Rivers told The New York Daily News that she was "stable but not conscious".

Our thoughts go out to Joan, and wish her a speedy recovery.
