Just hours after Joan Rivers was rushed to the hospital with reported cardiac or respiratory arrest, has learned that the comedian has already been upgraded to “stable condition” at NYC’s Mount Sinai hospital.

“Our own lovely living legend Joan Rivers is in stable condition at Mount Sinai hospital,” E! News anchor Ken Baker tweeted at 9:30 a.m. PT on Thursday.

Rivers, 81, had been admitted to the hospital following a 911 call that reportedly took place roughly around 9:39 a.m. ET. Rivers had been undergoing throat surgery at a clinic, according to reports, when a 911 call was placed after the Fashion Police host fell into “cardiac or respiratory arrest.”
