Comedian and Actress Joan Rivers Dead at Age 81
From Eyewitness News 7 New York:
Comedian Joan Rivers has died. Her daughter Melissa released a statement just moments ago saying, "It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. 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. My mother's greatest joy."
I'm sure additional details will surface on this story. Earlier this morning I heard rumblings about the facility that she went into cardiac arrest at, being investigated.
May she rest in peace.
