Banana kills old woman but not her spirit

From Falling banana kills woman – NSW/ACT – Breaking News 24/7 – NEWS.com.au:

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.


Stumbled upon via Digg. I can’t believe I missed this considering that I read news.com.au daily. 🙂
