The New York Police Department said Thursday that “no foul play appears to be involved” in his death. According to a report, around 12:40 a.m. ET a 911 call came in about a “person in need” and found a “73-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive.”
The Fire Department of New York said it responded to a report of a man suffering a heart attack at home, and the time and location of that response matched the NYPD location associated with Trump. The fire department said that he died on the way.
Trump was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS and police.
