ABC News -  Joan Rivers has been rushed to a New York City hospital in critical condition after an emergency call that she was in cardiac arrest, according to a law enforcement source.

The New York City Fire Department transported a woman matching her description to Mt. Sinai Hospital earlier this morning after receiving a call that the woman was in cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side clinic, Yorkville Endoscopy, an FDNY source said.

TMZ earlier reported that Rivers was having surgery on her vocal chords at the clinic.

No other details were immediately available and her rep had no other information when contacted by ABC News.

Rivers, 81, had been hard at work of late, co-hosting her E! TV show, "Fashion Police" and doing stand-up comedy. According to Ticketmaster, she had seven shows planned across the U.S. for November.
