Joan Rivers’ family is allegedly considering the idea of suing the throat surgery hospital, this has been reported. The eighty one year old comedian is still in a coma because of a routine vocal chords surgery at the Manhattan hospital when she reportedly just stopped breathing. At present she is being slowly taken out of the induced coma. She has been on life support since she suffered a heart attack on Thursday.
A source hinted to the Daily News that they could be considering legal action.
“Shock and upset is turning to anger, and they are looking for someone to blame.
“The night before she was performing and now she is placed on life support. An 81-year-old should not have that procedure as an outpatient. Very ill-advised,” a family source told the New York Daily News.
Twelve hours before her cardiac arrest, Rivers had joked about how close she may be to death to a packed-out audience in Manhattan venue.
Because of this health scare she had been rushed over to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. The family remains hopeful, including her daughter forty s year old Melissa that her mother will be able to pull out of this. But doctors reportedly warned she may have brain damage. Also by her bedside is her thirteen year old grandson Cooper. Melissa issued a statement
“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”
