Joan Rivers may have died because of CPR delay by doctors

New York: Late comedienne Joan Rivers died because of a delay in CPR as doctor's continued to perform scoping procedures on her larynx and trachea for 14 minutes even as her pulse and blood pressure plummeted.

EMT records and a federal report has shown that Yorkville Endoscopy's now-former medical director, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, wasted an additional 10 minutes on their own unsuccessful resuscitation attempts before calling 911, the New York Post reported.

One insider said of Rivers' condition that she had no heartbeat and the actress had cyanosis around the lips and the mouth.

According to EMT records the doctors stopped giving CPR as they waited for the ambulances to arrive.
