Mike Tyson's daughter, Exodus, is on life support in "extremely critical condition" after an accident in her Phoenix home, the Associated Press reports. The boxer's four-year-old reportedly was playing on a treadmill and became entangled in a cord located under the machine's console. Her seven-year-old brother found the girl and alerted their mother, who called for emergency response.
“Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop,” Phoenix police Sgt. Andy 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.” Tyson flew back to Phoenix from Las Vegas immediately upon hearing the news. At this time authorities are ruling the child's injury as accidental.
