Mike Tyson's four-year old daughter in critical condition

New, comments

The four-year old daughter of former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was found hanging from a cord and is now in "very critical condition." From the AP:

Police in Phoenix say boxer Mike Tyson's 4-year-old daughter is on life support after she was found with her neck on a treadmill cable.

Police Sgt. Andy Hill said the "tragic accident" happened Monday morning at Tyson's home when the girl's 7-year-old brother found her on a treadmill with her neck on a cable attached to the exercise machine.

The boy told the girl's mother from another room. She took the girl off the cable, called 911 and tried to revive her.

Hill said the girl is now in "extremely critical condition" and on life support.

Hill said Mike Tyson was out of town but returned to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident.

This is a horrible story and I can't think of anything to say other than our best wishes to Mike Tyson and the rest of the girl's family.
