Mike Tyson's 4-year old daughter Exodus Tyson died yesterday after a tragic accident on Monday.
Oh, this is unbelievably sad news— something no parent ever wants to hear...
News spread fast Monday after Exodus Tyson was found at home by her 7-year old brother, horribly injured with her neck caught in a cable on a treadmill. Exodus's mother removed the cord and immediately called 9-1-1; however, after some time on life support, Exodus Tyson was pronounced dead at 11:45 a.m. on Tuesday. Mike Tyson, who had been in Las Vegas, flew to Phoenix to be at his daughter's side.
In the statement released from the family, Mike Tyson said, "We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world. 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 is the youngest world heavyweight champion in history, and he retired from professional boxing in 2005. Exodus was the youngest of Mike Tyson's six children, from two previous marriages. Tyson, a documentary that explores Mr. Tyson's troubled past is currently playing in theaters, and he also makes an appearance in the upcoming comedy The Hangover, due in theaters on June 5th.
