**Updated on 5/27: Exodus Tyson has sadly passed away. This is what the family had to say about the tragic accident:

“There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus,” the family said in a statement. “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.”(Source)

Original Story posted on 5/26:Boxer Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter, Exodus Tyson, is on life support and in “extremely critical condition” after accidentally hanging herself with a treadmill cable on Monday morning. Exodus’ seven-year-old brother discovered his sister’s lifeless body hanging from the cable cord and quickly called the little girl’s mom for help. The girl’s mother, who was in another room, responded and took her daughter off the cable, called 911 and attempted to revive Exodus. Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR on the girl.

Andy Hill, Phoenix police sergeant, reports the following: “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.”

According to Hill, everything in the investigation points to an accident. “There’s nothing in the investigation that revealed anything suspicious,” he said.

Hill said former heavyweight champion Tyson was in Las Vegas when the accident happened but flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of his daughter’s condition. Exodus is at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in central Phoenix.

  1. Life is an undying cycle. It is a battle of survival. If you quit, then you’re a loser. If you fall, you stand up! If you keep on complaining about the miseries of your life, nothing will happen. GOD doesn’t throw stones that we cannot catch. Live with HIM and everything will turn out good. Have a blessed life.

    God has a reason 4 allowing things to happen, we may never understand His wisdom but we simply have 2 trust His will. God bless you all the way. May he keep you and bless you pass through this difficult day. He Loves us

  2. There is nothing to fear, nothing to run away from in the dark. No ghost can trouble us, if there is only love in our heart.

    Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.

    As we remember this day the love we shared with those who have gone, may we also cherish the moments that we share with the people still in our path.

    When situations get u down remember that there’s someone in Heaven who loves you and watches over you… and there is someone on earth who cares for you… Take care!

    Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know that they are happy.

  3. My heart goes out to Mike, Mother, and family, My Aunt said losing a child is the first thing you think about when you go to bed and the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning. My son 3 likes to play on the Treadmill when I am in the bathroom. I noticed him putting the cord around his arm and playing with the little short string. I have since removed the cord and will not let him near it. I never thought something so innocent could happen. We all have to leave this earth, It’s just so much more painful when it’s a child.

  4. She was a beautiful child, poor little angel. Hope they can get through this together as a family and find peace.

  5. How sad. There’s always something so very sad for a parent to lose a child. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

  6. The precious life of this baby has been taken so prematurely. So very sad for everyone involved. I just can’t imagine. May her mommy and daddy, family and friends find comfort in knowing that she is in a better place. I pray for them because there is no greater pain than losing a child. I pray they will find the strength to get through this horrific time in their lives – them and anyone else going through the same tragedy. RIP, precious one.

  7. I was so upset that one website focused on Mike Tyson’s troubles more than they focused on the death of his baby daughter!

  8. I am so sorry to hear this. Just know that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

  9. My thoughts and prayers are with The Tyson family during their time of grief and there after. R.I.P. Exodus…

  11. Omg that is soo sad! My condolences go out to the Tyson family. Parents need to watch their babies. This woman said her 5 year old was playing in her neighbors basement with weights and one crushed her skull. I think it hits more b/c he’s such a big star. I guess celebrities aren’t immune to tragedies such as this.

  12. this is so tragic. unfortunately little Exodus did not make it. Its reported that she was taken off life support at 11:45 am today.

  13. This is so terrible. I don’t really understand how it happen and who was suppose to be caring for this child. This is so tragic we can only pray that she pulls through.

  15. his daughter died this afternoon. i am truly heartbroken for their family. her mother and brother who will probably have the most awful guilt for the rest of their lives. praying for them. i hope you will too.

  16. Unfortunately, she did not make it and my heart goes out to Mike and his family. I feel your pain, having lost my sister, her son and her step-daughter to a house fire in Atalnta in Christmas 2005. It is a horrible feeling to say the least.

  17. The poor baby passed…RIP and prayers to her family

    Exodus Tyson dies from injuries
    Associated Press

    PHOENIX — Police say the 4-year-old daughter of boxer Mike Tyson has died a day after her neck accidentally was caught in a treadmill cord while she was playing at home.

    Phoenix police spokesman Andy Hill said Exodus Tyson was pronounced dead in a hospital just before noon Tuesday. Police have said an investigation showed it was a “tragic accident.”

    Police say the girl was playing on the treadmill Monday when her head apparently slipped inside a cord hanging under the console. Exodus’ 7-year-old brother found her and alerted his mother.

    Former heavyweight champion Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident and flew to Phoenix on Monday.

  18. Exodus has died. I am so sorry to annouce this terrible news! My prayers go out to the entire Tyson family. My God be with you during this difficult time….Lisa

  19. Is very sorry for Mike’s most tragic lost of his baby girl… Sorry to hear…. Words can not explain the feeling!!

  20. I just read on another site that Exodus Tyson was officially pronounced deceased at 11:45 this morning.
    That hurt my heart.
    My prayers go out to the Tyson family.
    God will see them through and baby girl Exodus is at home safe with the Lord.
    She is no longer suffering.
    May God rest this little angels soul and give this family peace.

  21. this is so awful, I can’t even imagine how they’re feeling, they’re def. in my thoughts and prayers as well, esp. her brother who found her.

  22. Father God, please watch over this family and if it be your will, please bring forth a miracle that Exodus Tyson makes a full recovery.
    Please keep this family close to you during their hour of need.
    You and only you, Heavenly Father has control over this tragedy.
    Please give the doctors treating this child the knowledge on what to do for her.
    Please give this family the stregnth that they need no matter the outcome.
    And especially comfort the 7 year old brother who found his little sister in this terrible situation.
    I pray this prayer to you in our Lord and Saviour Jesus, name. Amen.

  23. Exodus and her family are in my prayers. I can not imagine finding my baby like that. May she have a speedy recovery with no permanet damage.

  24. This is terrible news! I’m really hoping she pulls through without lasting effects. Mike married a doctor a while back, I wonder if she’s the mom mentioned in the story? Either way my prayers and regards are with the Tyson family.

    • Zee, I don’t think his ex-wife is the mother of the little girl. One article said that Mike and his girlfriend had been living in Arizona for 5 years and they have two children.

      Anywho, my heart goes out to this poor little baby. They are so innocent and there are so many dangers. I pray this baby make it through and for Mike, his girlfriend and their family. So sad.

  25. So sad I hope she gets better, young children have a resiliency unlike adults so I have faith she’ll be ok.
    Send up an extra prayer for her.

    • I read yesterday that his baby passed. So sorry to hear about this tragic story. My thoughts & prayers go out to the family.
