According to the New York Daily News Mike Tyson’s daughter Exodus died Tuesday, a day after suffering an unfortunate choking accident on a home treadmill.
The ex-champ was at the hospital bedside of Exodus Tyson, who had been clinging to life after she accidentally got tangled up in a cord on the exercise machine Monday.
“Our sympathies go out to the family,” he said.
Exodus Tyson’s older brother was watching TV and their mom was cleaning their central Phoenix home when Exodus apparently started playing with the machine alone.
A cord looped around the girl’s neck and somehow choked her. She was unconscious when her brother found her and her mother dialed 911.
“It’s kind of a loop,” Hill said. “Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose.”
Police called the incident a “tragic accident.”
Tyson, 42, who was the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history, was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident. He flew home and was spotted outside St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, where doctors tried for hours to save the preschooler’s life.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Mike Tyson and his family.
