The family of Joan Rivers has confirmed that the comedian is now on life support.

The 81-year-old went into cardiac arrest during a procedure at a Manhattan doctor's office last Thursday.

She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital.

In a statement Tuesday, Rivers' daughter, Melissa, said the family is extremely grateful for all the public support.

Rivers is the host of Fashion Police on the E! network and the co-star of WEtv's "Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best."
