NEW YORK — Joan Rivers is in a New York City hospital Thursday after she was rushed from a doctor’s office when she went into cardiac arrest, police and hospital officials said.
The 81-year-old comedian’s condition wasn’t immediately known.
‘‘This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she is being attended to. Her family wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support,’’ said Sid Dinsay, a spokesman for Mount Sinai Hospital. ‘‘We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available.’’
New York City police officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly name Rivers, said she was taken to the hospital just after 9:30 a.m. Thursday.
Rivers’ representatives didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
