Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter is on a life suppo


Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter is on a life support machine after being found with a cable from an exercise treadmill wrapped around her neck.

Exodus was found by her seven-year-old brother at their home in Phoenix, Arizona.

The boy told the girl's mother, who was in another room. She helped Exodus out of the cable, called 911 and tried to revive her.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was in "extremely critical condition" and on life support, a police spokesman said.

"Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop," he explained.

"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."

Former heavyweight boxing champion Tyson who was in Las Vegas promoting a new movie flew to Phoenix as soon as he heard about the accident.

According to local media he arrived at St Jospeh's Hospital in a taxi and raced inside without comment.
