Ex-Wife of former President Donald Trump dies from fall at 73, medical examiner revealed.
Ivana Trump, the ex-wife of former President Donald Trump, died from injuries sustained from a fall, the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Friday.
Former president Trump said Thursday that Ivana Trump had died at her home in New York City. She was 73.
Ivana Trump was Donald Trump’s first wife. They had three children together: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump.
“Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and caring mother and friend,” the Trump family said in a statement.
“Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination,” the family said. “She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren.”
Manhattan paramedics, responding to a call for cardiac arrest, found a 73-year-old woman in the Upper East Side apartment where Ivana Trump lived just after 12:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the FDNY. She was pronounced dead at the scene, the NYPD said.
On Friday, the reporting medical examiner said her cause of death was blunt impact injuries to the torso sustained as the result of a fall and that the death was ruled an accident and not suspicious.
