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

Eddie Cibrian shot down reports that he had an affair with his Northern Lights co-star LeAnn Rimes.
“Other than being friends and two actors who were romantically intertwined in a movie-for-television we filmed last fall, there is no truth to the reporting initiated by US Magazine,” Eddie said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship.”
A Rimes friend tells People, “There are some feelings there but it’s too early to tell if it’s going to develop and if she’s done with her marriage… The situation that she’s grappling with right now is not the cause for her marriage troubles. There have been issues brewing for months prior to meeting Eddie on set.”
Rimes, 26, and Cibrian, 35, have their upcoming TV movie Northern Lights, premiering this Saturday, March 21 @ 9PM ET/PT.
