Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter on life support

May 26th, 2009 // 63 Comments

Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter Exodus is on life support after accidentally hanging herself from the power cable of a treadmill at the boxer’s home Monday morning, according to MyFoxPhoenix:

CPR was administered and 4-year-old Exodus Tyson was taken to St. Joe’s Hospital. She’s on life support and in extremely critical condition.
According to police, the victim’s 7-year-old brother discovered the child in distress, and alerted their mother. She found the girl with a cable around her neck, hanging from the treadmill, and immediately called 911.
“Somehow the little girl got something caught across her throat, she became unresponsive, the boy went and got the mother, and the mother came out and found the child,” says Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Hill.
Phoenix Police are investigating. So far, they believe the incident was accidental.

Mike Tyson was in Vegas during the incident but is now at his daughter’s side. Talk about some horribly random shit. Best wishes to the family and little Exodus.

    First? This is tragic. My best wishes to the Tyson family.

  2. Yea, no snarky comments about an injured child…

    Though Tyson himself looks pregnant…

  3. Tulip

    I bet he bit her ear off.

  4. Arioch

    WOW.

    two comments that arent snarky!!!!

    That’s amazing, superficial commenters, simply amazing!! Job WELL DONE!

    ::cries::

    Fuckin’ Tyson let himself GO! What the fuck!

  6. Ted Kennedy's Tumor

    Poor girl. I hope she turns out OK. She needs to kick her dad’s ass for naming her Exodus though.

  7. cheetak

    Poor little girl, I pray she’s ok!

  8. My thoughts and prayers goes out to mikes family, No one wants to see the little girl migrate into the other side!

    How the hell do you hang yourself by the power cord? They’re 99.9% of the time on the bottom of the unit. I think they mean maybe the cord that stops the unit if you fall off, but again – those usually break free as well.

    What, does he have his treadmill right next to an overhang or something?

  10. Joe Pike

    A sad story. Way to be such a graceful flower Tulip you stupid ass. It’s a 4 yr old.

  11. dirk

    A black guy not at home with his kids? Imagine that.

  12. havoc

    It sounds like it may be that cord that you clip to yourself in case you fall and it turns the treadmill off. It hangs down like a mini blind cord.

    Damn, that sucks….

    My prayers are with the family. I cant believe these comments. This is a four year old little girl who is fighting for her life. I don’t care who the parents are chances are she isn’t going to make it and I know what it feels like to be in their shoes because I lost my four year old son to a tragic accident. There is no worse pain than that of losing a child. Shame shame on all you mean commenters!! My heart and prayers are with the family right now. May God help you find peace and the will to move forward.

  15. ToTellTheTruth

    A black guy not at home with his kids? Imagine that.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    White guys, proving why our ancestors called them blue eyed devils since 1855.

    Dispite the typical “white humor” andon behalf of civilized Americans, I pray for the health of Exodus Tyson and for the day that narrow-minded white men “get it!”

  17. #13 – Please tell me where you see a mean comment, you fucking douche water taste tester… I mean except for that one.

  18. Arthur Kade's Ballbag

    What goes from brown to blue at the flick of a switch?

    Exodus Tyson!!!!!!

    Too soon?

  19. Deva

    Yes #18, WAAAAYYY too soon. Look, I’m the first one to bag on “celebrities” and get my semi-racism on, but this is a 4 year old who is nothing but innocent. You should refrain from bagging on her.

    And #11, try going back and reading the post: it clearly said that Tyson doesn’t have custody of her and she was with the mother at the time. For all that Mike is, I’m sure he’s a supportive father and loves his children. His personal escapades if you will have no bearing on what happened to her.

    I can’t believe I’m defending him.

    sorry for the poor kid, but mike, what goes around always comes around

  21. MORON

    I sincerelt hope you die a slow and painful death, nobody deserves to lose a child

  22. no way

    @ 20. val

    I sincerely hope you die a slow and painful death, nobody deserves to lose a child, you insensitive A-hole

  23. no way

    excuse me my internet needs the fixorz

  24. Jennytalia

    After her exodus, she will be packaged into a Tyson steak bag.

  25. richbike

    #24…that’s just wrong :) …but funny!

  26. Jesse

    Like father, like son – obviously it was the son’s first hit. At age 7. Kudos, young Tyson. Your genes run strong.

  27. Phil

    Sorry, but I care about society first and foremost. Mike Tyson carries bad genes and if this girl dies instead of reproducing, that’s at least a +1 for society.

  28. magentapyramid

    Well, when I was 4 years old I was hung by my 9 year-old brother.
    Just sayin’.

  29. mikeock

    The irony is that the cord she was strangled on was part of a safety device required on all new treadmills. Way to go, government!

  30. George Forman

    In unrelated news – man Mike – you got fat! You need one of my grills and some chicken.

  31. Jesse

    “The irony is that the cord she was strangled on was part of a safety device required on all new treadmills. Way to go, government!”

    The government can’t be responsible for what a monkey does after it steals some product.

  32. Dan

    Exodus is a hot name. I bet she’s hot.

  33. Rhialto

    Hope his daughter gets well soon!

  34. Italian Stallion

    I think they may have messed up. It says hanging from a treadmill??? I’m shocked that they spelled tree wrong. What a tragedy……

  35. Vince Lombardi

    Anyone who posted something derogatory or flat out cruel needs to look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Is it so important to me to be funny that I’m willing to do so at the expense of a tragic accident to an innocent child?” You either don’t have kids or should never have them, as you are incapable of any kind of sensitivity to the pain and fear a parent goes through 24/7 that their kids grow up healthy and free from harm. There is NO HUMOR to be had here. In fact, The Superficial really should have kept it off the site completely to avoid just such a response.

    The only response
    to a child’s grave is
    to lie down before it and play dead.

  36. Jen

    She has died. Very sad. Poor little girl.

  37. jac

    Exodus? Really?

    Poor kid.

    Phillip Hurbace you god damn mongoloid – learn to post.

  45. kookoo

    # 27, you are a fucking douche, talking about “bad genes.” Regardless of the bullshit that he did, and his personal life, he was still unbeatable for years, and remains one of the greatest boxers of all time. When he left boxing, it was the death knell of it. You call those bad genes? Better than some pole smoker who plays on a computer all day, hope mike finds you, then you can say it to his face. Fat or not, he would certainly kick your punk ass. I feel a lot of sympathy for the poor bastard, he has, at times, had a fucking miserable life, I’m sorry for his family.

  46. Exo

    My thoughts goes out to the family.
    The little girl does not need my pity, for she is now with the angels, forever playing in hapiness, waiting för her family to join her.

    Be in peace, little one.

  47. Delish

    As of 37 min ago she is still alive, just keep praying for her !

  48. Lloyd Johnson

    27. Phil-
    “Sorry, but I care about society first and foremost.”

    Then you should kill yourself and spare the rest of us from tolerating your existence.

  49. My heart goes out to the family.

    Mike is one of the most tragic figures of the past few decades.
