Mike Tyson Daughter Dies
We’re closing out the night with a story that can only be described as tragic…..
The 4-year-old daughter of boxing legend Mike Tyson has died one day after she accidentially hung herself with a treadmill cord while playing at home.
Phoenix Police spokesman Andy Hill says Exodus Tyson was removed from life support and pronounced dead just before noon on Tuesday.
“I was just advised by investigators that Exodus Tyson was pronounced deceased at 11:45 AM today at the hospital. Our sympathies go out to the family,” a rep for the Phoenix Police Department said in statement released this afternoon.
Police believe the little girl had been playing on the treadmill when her head slipped inside a cord hanging under the console. Exodus’ 7-year-old brother found her unresponsive and alerted their mother, who immediately contacted paramedics.
Tyson — a former heavyweight boxing champion — was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident and flew to Phoenix after learning his daughter had been hospitalized.
Authorities have ruled the child’s death a “tragic accident.”
Things like this are not supposed to happen to kids. Very sad…Rest In Peace, Exodus….
