Mike Tyson's 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, has passed away one day after she accidentally got her neck wrapped in a treadmill cord while playing at home. Sgt. Andy Hill of the Phoenix Police Department confirmed the news on Tuesday, May 26, saying "I was just advised by investigators that Exodus Tyson was pronounced deceased at 11:45 A.M. today at the hospital. Our sympathies go out to the family. I cannot release any other information."

Exodus, allegedly, had been playing on the treadmill at her house when her head slipped inside a cord hanging under the console. Her brother found her unresponsive and immediately told their mother, who was in separate room of their house. The mother then called 911 and administered CPR. Exodus was rushed to St. Joe's Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, where she was put under life support. Mike, who had been in Las Vegas when the incident happened, returned to Arizona and was seen entering the hospital wearing a white button-up shirt.

At time of writing, it has been confirmed that authorities rule Exodus' death as an accident. Therefore, there will be no investigation conducted in relation to the case.

In addition to reporting Exodus' death, E! News also brings to the surface an update story regarding the little girl's mother. The site claims Exodus' mother is a 34-year-old Phoenix resident named Sol Xochitl. A neighbor identified as Dinka Radic informs that Sol and Mike no longer live together but are still a couple. The family has been living in the neighborhood for about six years.

Speaking of the incident happened to Exodus, Dinka claimed Sol is "over there at the hospital," adding that "her family came last night to check on the house, but no one is home right now. She's a very good mother."
