The New York Gay Men’s Chorus were at Joan Rivers’ funeral singing.
Her funeral took place at Manhattan’s Temple Emanu-El.
Rivers had undergone minor elective surgery at the Yorkville Endoscopy Clinic on the 28th August, where she had a cardiac and respiratory arrest. Paramedics then took the comedian to Mount Sinai Hospital where she later died.
There are no criminal investigations under way however the state health department is investigating whether there was any malpractice from staff and doctors at the Yorkville Endoscopy.
