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.”
Mike Tyson has a tattoo on his face. His face.
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.
Mike Tyson, a former heavyweight boxing champion, lives in the house with his girlfriend and their two children.
