Shock over shock! The legendary comedian Joan Rivers is no more, but the investigation is still on regarding her tragic death.
The tragic death
Joan Rivers visited Yorkville Endoscopy for some throat issue and finally that lead to unfortunate fatal hospitalization. According to CNN, a source familiar to death investigator stated that Joan, 81, went into cardiac arrest when her doctor was performing a biopsy on the vocal cords. The operation was performed on August 28 without the consent of the celebrity.
Selfie during biopsy
CNN informed that a staff member of the Yorkville Endoscopy, New York City, told the investigation team that the doctor took selfie while the actress was under anesthesia during the biopsy.
Biopsy by Joan Rivers’ personal doctor
Joan Rivers passed away after a weeklong fight on September 4, 2014. The actress went for routine endoscopy at the clinic of gastroenterologist Dr. Lawrence Cohen. The doctor told Joan about the hoarse throat. Joan’s personal doctor who was present during the checkup requested the Dr. Lawrence to perform biopsy at the clinic. The doctor who accompanied Joan was not a throat specialist, but performed biopsy in the clinic without her consent.
The investigation team
The investigation team believes that while biopsy her vocal cord began to swell, cutting off the oxygen flow and lead to cardiac arrest.
Last week, a statement issued by the Yorkville Endoscopy stated that vocal cord biopsy has ever been done in the clinic. However, there was no name mentioned in the statement.
