Joan Rivers being brought out of medically induced coma as family considers lawsuit over botched procedure: sources Published: September 1, 2014

Joan Rivers’ daughter is keeping her “fingers crossed” for a miracle to bring the 81-year-old comedic legend back from the brink — even as the family considers legal action over the botched procedure that caused her collapse, reports the New York Daily News.

Doctors began lifting the feisty funny lady from her medically induced coma Sunday at Mount Sinai Hospital as Melissa Rivers, her only child, waited to see how the legendary comic will respond.

“The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday,” a source close to the family told the Daily News. “There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised, leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair.”

And that has the family considering a lawsuit.
