Comedian Joan Rivers was rushed to a New York hospital after she stopped breathing during throat surgery, WNBC reported Thursday.

Rivers was undergoing the procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy on East 93rd Street.

According to E!, the 81-year-old arrived at Mount Sinai Hospital. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, and grandson, Cooper, are said to have taken a morning flight to New York to be with her.

E! News reported Thursday afternoon that Rivers was in stable but critical condition.

"This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she is being attended to,"hospital rep Sid Dinsay said. "Her family wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support. We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available."

The health scare comes on the heels of a busy week for the Brooklyn-born funnywoman. Rivers covered the red-carpet looks at Sunday night's VMA ceremony and Monday's Primetime Emmys for a special episode of E!'s "Fashion Police." She also worked on her online talk show, "In Bed With Joan," and made an appearance on QVC.

Get well soon Miss Rivers!!!
