Former championship boxer Mike Tyson is in the news again, but this time it’s sad news. His 4-year-old daughter, Exodus Tyson, is hanging on to her life after getting her neck tangled in a cord from a treadmill in her home in Phoenix, Arizona Monday (May 25). According to police reports, little Exodus was playing on the treadmill at the time of the accident, where her 7-year-old brother found her tangled in the cord and called for his mother.
At the time of the incident, the mother, whose name has not been released, was in a separate room cleaning and upon hearing her 7-year-old son, she immediately called 911 and Exodus was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she remains as of now, in critical condition and on life support.
42-year-old Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time, but has since arrived in Phoenix to be by his daughter’s side.
“The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for all your prayers and support, and we ask that we be allowed our privacy at this difficult time,” the boxer’s rep said in a statement.
