UPDATE: Such sad, terrible news…
Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter Exodus died Tuesday in a Phoenix hospital after accidentally getting her neck wrapped in a cord from an exercise machine at home.
“We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world,” Tyson said in a statment. “There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus. We ask you now to please respect our need at this very difficult time for privacy to grieve and try to help each other heal.”
The child, who had been on life support, was pronounced dead at 11:45 a.m. on Tuesday at St. Joseph Hospital and Medical Center, says Phoenix police Sgt. Andy Hill.
Her father, who had been in Las Vegas at the time of the accident, returned to Arizona and was seen entering the hospital on Tuesday morning.
Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter is on life support after being found by her 7-year-old brother hanging from a treadmill cord, according to police.
Exodus Tyson is in critical condition, according to FOX News.
Exodus was playing near the exercise equipment while her mother was cleaning in a separate room at 10:30 this morning. The mother sent the brother to look for the little girl.
After finding her in distress, he alerted his mother, who found Exodus on a treadmill with what has been described as a cable around her neck, according to police, who call it a “tragic accident.”
She immediately took the cable off her daughter, called 911 and began performing CPR.
Exodus was taken to St. Joe’s Hospital.
Tyson was not at home at the time of the incident.
