In what cops are calling a "tragic accident," Exodus accidentally hung herself on a cord dangling from a treadmill in her Phoenix home. Sgt. Andy Hill said "Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console -- it's kind of a loop. 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."
Her 7-year-old brother found her Monday and told their mother, who was in another room. She immediately called 911 and tried to revive the little girl. Paramedics performed CPR on her and she was rushed to a local hospital, where she was earlier reported to be in "extremely critical condition" and on life support.
The 42-year-old had been in Las Vegas but flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident. In a statement, the boxer said, "The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for all your prayers and support, and we ask that we be allowed our privacy at this difficult time."
