The 81-year-old comedy legend was at Yorkville Endoscopy having an outpatient procedure on her vocal cords when she suddenly stopped breathing. Health officials are looking into the clinic but have not yet launched an official investigation. Rivers was recently taken out of a medically-induced coma and moved from ICU into a private room. There is no word on her current condition or whether she is still on life support.
