Comedian Joan Rivers Hospitalized
By The Associated Press
Joan Rivers is in a New York City hospital, one day after going into cardiac arrest at a doctor's office.
Melissa Rivers said in a statement Thursday that her mother was resting comfortably. She did not elaborate on the 81-year-old comedian's condition. She offered thanks for an outpouring of ``love and support'' and asked for continuing thoughts and prayers.
The Mount Sinai Hospital said it had no updates on Friday morning. On Thursday, hospital spokesman Sid Dinsay (DIHN'-say) confirmed that Rivers had been taken there in the morning.
The entertainer has logged a half-century in show business and is known for often-snarky red carpet commentary.
A show she had scheduled Friday at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey, has been postponed.
