Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Exodus Tyson, Mike Tyson’s daughter, as she is currently on life support after an accident involving the family’s treadmill. More details/video regarding the story are here.
Exodus Tyson, the 4-year-old daughter of boxer Mike Tyson, is currently on life support after she was found hanging from a treadmill cord earlier today.
Phoenix police arrived at the Tyson home around 10:30 AM Monday, where Exodus’ mother was already performing CPR on her. She was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, and is listed in extremely critical condition.
Police Sgt. Andy Hill called the incident a “tragic accident“.
“Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop,” Hill said. “Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.”
Mike Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident, and immediately flew to Phoenix upon hearing the news. A statement was released on behalf of the Tyson family:
“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.”
We at Right Fielders extend our prayers to the Tyson family.
