Tyson's 4-year-old daughter dies after accident

THE death of Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter in a bizarre accident adds an awful chapter to the boxer's troubled life.

Exodus Tyson died at a hospital on Tuesday, a day after her neck apparently got caught in a cord dangling from a treadmill at her Phoenix home, police said.

Police said Exodus either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under the console and suffocated.

She was pronounced dead just before noon after being on life support, said police Sgt. Andy Hill, who called the injury a "tragic accident."

"There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus," the family said in a statement.

"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."

Tyson, who was in Las Vegas and has been promoting a documentary on his life, flew to Phoenix, where he was seen entering the hospital.
