The four-year-old daughter of heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson died Tuesday after an accident at home in Phoenix. Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time and immediately flew back to Arizona.
Exodus Tyson was playing near a workout treadmill on Monday when she somehow became entangled with a cord hanging from the machine. Her seven-year-old brother reportedly found Exodus and told his mother who then called 911 and began administering first aid.
Firefighters performed CPR and Exodus was taken to St Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Centre where she was listed in critical condition. Tuesday morning Exodus was removed from life support and subsequently died.
In a statement released Tuesday, the Tyson family said: “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.”
