Joan Rivers: On Life Support, Family "Hopeful" Comedian Will Survive

by at . Comments

Joan Rivers is on life support and may be on the verge of death.

The comedian, who was hospitalized on Thursday after she stopped breathing during throat surgery, is reliant on machines at the moment to stay alive.

According to TMZ insiders, the celebrity's family (which includes daughter Melissa, of course) will be forced to decide how it wishes to proceed over the next few days.

They remain "hopeful," the site writes, that Rivers will somehow pull through even after going off life support.

Rivers was upgraded to stable condition a few hours after being admitted to Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City and it's unclear just what complications have arisen since.

We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to Joan and all her loved ones.
