Ivana Trump died in accidental fall, medical examiner says

Ivana Trump, the first wife of former President Donald Trump, sustained blunt impact injuries to her torso that resulted in her death, according to the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Authorities do not suspect foul play, but rather believe she sustained the injuries in an accidental fall, according to the medical examiner’s office.

“Having released this determination, OCME will not comment further on the investigation,” a spokesperson for the office said, according to CNBC.

First responders who responded to a 911 call Thursday found Ivana Trump unconscious at her apartment, a New York City Police Department spokesperson told Fox News.

“On Thursday, July 14, 2022, at approximately 1240 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a aided individual at 10 East 64 Street, within the confines of the 19 Precinct. Upon arrival, officers observed a 73 year-old female unconscious and unresponsive. EMS responded to the location and pronounced the victim deceased at the scene,” the spokesperson’s statement said.

An NYPD spokesperson also told the outlet that she was discovered “in close proximity” to the bottom of a staircase.

Ivana Trump was married to former President Trump from 1977 to 1992. They share three children together: Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric.

“It’s been a very sad day,” Eric Trump told reporters Thursday as he walked out of his mother’s apartment building, according to ABC News.

Former President Trump first announced Ivana Trump’s death in a statement posted to Truth Social.

“I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City,” he said.

“She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!”

A Trump family statement expressed similar sentiments.

“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump. Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and caring mother and friend,” the statement said.

“Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination. She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren.”
