Mike Tyson's Daughter Dies After Treadmill Accident

Mike Tyson's Daughter Dies After Treadmill Accident

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson‘s 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, has died after her neck apparently got tangled in a dangling treadmill cord at home in Phoenix, Ariz.

On Monday (May 25), Exodus was found by her 7-year-old brother Miguel Tyson and later untangled by her mother. She was listed in “extremely critical condition” at Phoenix’s St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and the following day, she died of her injuries.

The police has 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, who had been in Las Vegas at the time of the accident, says in a statement, “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.”

Exodus is one of Tyson‘s six children whom he had with several different women.

Our deepest condolences and sympathies go out to the Tyson family.

    This is so sad! My hear definitely goes out to them. This is why toddlers have to be watched constantly because they’re so curious that accidents like this can happen easily if they’re not given proper supervision. :(

    I know Mike has done a lot of things and been accused of a lot of things, but nobody should have to deal with this. He’s been through a lot in life. I wish him and his family peace. He was so talented, and I hope he finds success again in something soon.

  • wtf

    For a site that is supposed to be non-snark lifting the line, “Exodus is one of Tyson’s six children whom he had with several different women. ” from Wikipedia is both plagerism and tacky.

    I would expect much more from you Jared!

    @me: instead of putting blame on someone why don’t you just offer your condolences! you can supervise your kids 24/7 and than blink your eyes and something will happen! This is why it’s called a freak accident! poor family!

    Just plain awful.

  • Queen bee

    Unbelievably sad..

    …I too feel there was no need for the comment in the intro that this was one of the six kids Mike Tyson had with “…several different women…”, but …I guess there’s no accounting for taste.

    May God give strength to Mike and his family at this horrendously difficult time.

  • Laura

    That is so tragic, my heart goes out to the Tyson family.

    “Exodus is one of Tyson’s six children whom he had with several different women.”


    trés tacky j.j.

    clint eastwood has a litter of kids from several babies mamas, but would you include such a comment if it were one of his kids that passed?

    get some fuggin’ class, why dont’cha.

    just say thoughts to the family and leave it at that.

    booooo…you stink for that 1!
