Hey, remember when Joan Rivers died? People were sad. Kids who get words from autopsy results at a Spelling Bee will also be sad because wtf.
“OCME [Office of the Chief Medical Examiner] has completed its investigation,” reads the statement from spokeswoman Julie Bolcer. “The cause of Ms. Rivers’ death is anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The manner of death is therapeutic complication. The classification of a death as a therapeutic complication means that the death resulted from a predictable complication of medical therapy.”
Long story short, her brain ran out of oxygen. WebMD says that’s bad. Since her heard was mostly Play-Doh and calk, the doctor performing the procedure was unprepared, so she died. But she was 81 so whatever. What? You wanna live forever, bitch?
