Phoenix (Arizona), May 25 (ANI): Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter was on life support and in "extremely critical condition" after she was found hanging Monday morning from a treadmill cable in her family's Phoenix home, police said.

Exodus Tyson's seven-year-old brother found her on a treadmill with her neck on a cable attached to the exercise machine, police sergeant Andy Hill said, calling it a "tragic accident."

The mother sent the boy to find the four-year-old girl who was playing in a separate room. The boy found his sister in distress and got his mother, police said.

"Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop,"

Fox News quoted Hill as saying: "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."

The girl's mother took her daughter off the cable, called 911 and attempted to revive her.

Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR on the girl. She was rushed to nearby St. Joe's Hospital.

Tyson, who was in Las Vegas, flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident. (ANI)
