The accident happened on Monday morning and Exodus was found by her 7 year old brother as she struggled with life and death.

The details of the incident were revealed by Arizona Republic and they posted the report on their website. However, the police department in Phoenix did not make any immediate comments. According to another source, the child was put on life support due to her critical condition. The police sergeant Andy Hill later commented that the incident was “a tragic accident.” Hill revealed, “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.”

At the time of accident Tyson was shooting for a new documentary directed by James Toback and was in Las Vegas. However, Tyson was later spotted in the hospital. One of the news channels showed him arriving at the hospital where his little daughter was admitted. Finding her daughter missing Tyson’s girlfriend had sent the boy to find his sister and he found her in that state. Tyson lives with his girlfriend and their two children. Hill has commented that, “there’s nothing in the investigation that revealed anything suspicious.”
