She survived brutal Nazi and Communist regimes to ultimately be brought down by a banana.
Slovenian migrant Ivanka Perko died in hospital last week in bizarre circumstances – she suffered complications after she dropped a banana on her leg.
Comical to the end, the 73-year-old old quipped to friends and family while on her deathbed: ‘I can’t believe after all this time it was a bloody banana that killed me.’
Simply surreal but strangely heartwarming too – mainly because she has lived a colourful life that most ppl could only imagine about, and because her attitude towards her own death is completely refreshing. She had lived a life with no regrets. Awesome.
