Ivana Trump died from accident, blunt impact injuries, New York City medical examiner rules.
Ivana Trump, an ex-wife of former President Donald Trump, died of “blunt impact injuries” to the torso, New York City’s medical examiner said Friday.
Trump, a longtime businessperson, died in her home in New York City on Thursday at age 73. She was the mother of Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump.
The New York Police Department had said Thursday there did not “appear to be any criminality” related to her death. According to a statement, police received a 911 call about an “aided individual” at about 12:40 p.m. ET and found a “73 year-old female unconscious and unresponsive.”
The Fire Department of New York said it responded to a report of an individual suffering cardiac arrest at the residence, with the time and place of that response matching the location the NYPD associated with Trump. The fire department said the victim was dead on arrival.
EMS, police said, pronounced Trump dead at the scene.
Raised in communist Czechoslovakia, Ivana Trump partnered with Donald Trump on some of his most prominent real estate projects. The two divorced in 1992 in the aftermath of his tabloid affair with Marla Maples — who later became Donald Trump’s second wife and mother of their daughter, Tiffany.
Ivana Trump died when she accidentally fell down the stairs of her Manhattan home — where a maintenance man found her body next to a cup of spilled coffee, officials and law-enforcement sources said Friday.
A personal aide and a cleaning lady had come to the 73-year-old Trump’s Upper East Side home Thursday and rang the bell and called her phone to get in, but no one answered, sources said.
