Comedian Joan Rivers has been moved out of intensive care, her daughter said Wednesday. "My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable. Thank you for your continued support," Melissa Rivers said in a statement. The update came a day after she said the comedy legend, 81, was "still on life support."

Rivers stopped breathing while undergoing a procedure on her vocal cords last Thursday at a New York clinic and was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital. Melissa Rivers flew from California with her 13-year-old son, Cooper, to be by her side.

Rivers is currently a co-host of the show "Fashion Police."
