This evening Mike Tyson's daughter was rushed to the hospital from an accident that occurred on the treadmill in the family's Phoenix home. She was found by her brother who discovered her laying on the treadmill with a cable from the machine on her neck. The brother called to their mother who then removed the young girl from the treadmill and called 911. She's now in the hospital on life support and in critical condition.
Police officer 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," Hill said. "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."
Mike Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident but immediately rushed back to Phoenix after hearing the news.
This is just tragic. Stories like this involving young children are the worst. I really hope for Mike Tyson and his family that their daughter pulls through and survives this accident.
