Mike Tyson’s Daughter on Life Support

040412_mikeTyson_vsmall_4p_widecMike Tyson’s 4 year old daughter was involved in a tragic accident on Memorial Day.  Phoenix police have said that Exodus Tyson was found with her neck caught in a cord of a treadmill.  Exodus’s 7 year old brother found her on the treadmill hanging from the cord that dangles from the console of the machine.  The brother ran and got his mother, who was in another room at the time.  She took the cord off from around her neck, called 911 and tried to revive her.  Responding EMTS performed CPR on Exodus as they rushed her to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ, where she remains on life support in “extremely serious condition.”

Sgt. Andy Hill of the Phoenix Police Dept  has stated  “Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop.” Hill further added  “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, former heavyweight champion, Mike tyson had been in Las Veges and flew to Phoenix immediately upon learning of the accident.  Tyson has six children: Gena, Mikey, Rayna, Amir, Miguel, and Exodus. Rayna and Amir are from his second wife and it is documented that the rest of his children are from several different women

A New York City public relations firm representing Tyson,released a statement on the family’s behalf:  “The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for all your prayers and support, and we ask that we be allowed our privacy at this difficult time,” the statement said.

Accidents involving children have to be one of the hardest situations police and fire officials can respond to.  I could not even imagine the grief that Tyson and his family are going through.  My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
