Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson's daughter, Exodus, died Tuesday in a Phoenix hospital. She was only four years old.
The little girl passed away after an accident in which she was found hanging from a cord after playing on an exercise machine at home.
"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.
