Say What Now? Joan Rivers' Doctor Allegedly Took a Selfie With Joan Seconds Before Cardiac Arrest


A staff member at the clinic where Joan Rivers suffered the cardiac arrest which ultimately led to her death has revealed that the doctor responsible for operating on Joan took a selfie with the comedian while she was under anesthesia just moments before things went bad.

via CNN:

The cardiac arrest leading to Joan Rivers’ death happened as the comedian’s personal doctor began performing a biopsy on her vocal cords, a source close to the death investigation told CNN.

A staff member at Manhattan’s Yorkville Endoscopy clinic told investigators that the doctor, who has not been publicly identified, took a selfie photo in the procedure room while Rivers was under anesthesia, the source said.

Rivers, 81, was at the clinic for a scheduled endoscopy by another doctor, gastroenterologist Dr. Lawrence Cohen. That procedure, intended to help diagnose her hoarse voice and sore throat, involved the insertion of a camera down her throat.

After Cohen, the clinic’s medical director, finished his work, a biopsy was done on Rivers without her prior consent, according to the source.

The clinic denied a biopsy was ever performed and refused to comment on the selfie accusations .

How disturbing.
