"We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world," a grieving Mike Tyson said in a statement.

"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."

Mike Tyson and his daughter Exodus several years ago.

Exodus' mother, whose name has not been released, was cleaning in another room when she sent her 7-year-old son to check on his sister.

The boy found Exodus tangled in a cord dangling from a treadmill. He called for his mother, who dialed 911 and administered CPR.

The child, who had been on life support, was pronounced dead at 11:45 a.m. at St. Joseph Hospital and Medical Center, said Phoenix police.

Mike Tyson, who had been in Las Vegas at the time of the accident, returned to Arizona and was seen entering the hospital in the morning.

The four-year-old daughter of Mike Tyson is currently on life support and in "extremely critical condition" after she was found hanging Monday morning from a treadmill cable in her family's Phoenix home, according to Fox News.

Exodus Tyson's 7-year-old brother found her on a treadmill with her neck on a cable attached to the exercise machine, police Sgt. Andy Hill said.

The mother sent the boy to find the 4-year-old girl who was playing in a separate room. The boy found his sister in distress and got his mother.

"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 of the "tragic accident."

"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."

The girl's mother took her daughter off the cable, called 911 and attempted to revive her. Officers and firefighters performed CPR on the girl.

She was rushed to nearby St. Joe's Hospital.

Hill said former heavyweight champion Tyson had been in Las Vegas but flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident.

Mike Tyson could not immediately be reached for comment. Calls to three of his reps were either not returned or not answered.

Hill said everything in the investigation pointed to an accident: "There's nothing that revealed anything suspicious," he said.

Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson has some interesting insight into woman-beating in general and as it pertains to the Chris Brown-Rihanna situation.

No stranger to domestic violence himself, Tyson MTV News his perspective on the Chris Brown scandal while promoting Tyson, a documentary on his life.

"My personal opinion about that is, he’s just a baby," Tyson said of Brown, whose career is in jeopardy as he faces assault and criminal threats charges.

"He’s just a little baby that don’t know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. He probably thinks, ‘I know how to handle my emotions.’"

"We all think we do. But the fact is, you look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don’t know how to handle those feelings."

Mike Tyson then expounded on this, growing increasingly animated and looking like he was about ready to pound somebody - anybody - into submission himself:

"Do I think it’s right to beat up a woman? No! Hell no! Have I hit a woman before? Hell yeah!!! Was I wrong? Hell yeah!!! I’m a product of that environment. Do I regret ever doing that? Hell yeah!! Would I do it again? Never!!"

Tyson served three years in prison for raping Desiree Washington in 1991. His ex-wife, Robin Givens, accused of him of spousal abuse two years earlier.
