Ivana Trump’s death ruled an accident, NYC examiner says

Ivana Trump, the first wife of former President Donald Trump and the mother of his oldest children, died accidentally of blunt force trauma to her torso, the New York City medical examiner’s office said Friday. Police were investigating whether she fell down the stairs. Two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Thursday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they could not discuss the matter publicly. The medical examiner’s brief report did not specify when the accident occurred. Donald Trump announced Thursday that Ivana died at her home near Central Park on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. She was 73. Her son Eric Trump said it was “a very sad day, a very sad day” as he left home on Thursday.

He managed one of his casinos in Atlantic City and helped decorate Trump Tower. Their marriage ended in a messy, public divorce after Donald Trump met his next wife, Marla Maples. But in recent years, Ivana Trump has been on good terms with her ex-husband. He wrote a 2017 book that was talked about once a week. Her death came at a difficult time for the Trump family. Two of her children, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, and the former president were scheduled to appear in the coming days for questioning in the New York attorney general’s political investigation into the family’s business practices. But the attorney general’s office agreed to postpone the depositions — a condition for an out-of-court hearing under oath — because of Ivana Trump’s death.
