How did Mike Tyson lose his daughter?

On 26 May 2009, as she was occupied with some house chores, Exodus Tyson's mother, Sol Xochitl, sent her eldest son Miguel Leon, who was seven then, to check on his baby sister. Sadly, he found the baby unconscious after tangling herself with a treadmill cable.

Miguel quickly informed his mother, who untangled the cord around her neck and performed CPR after calling 911. Paramedics took over from the distressed mother as Exodus was unresponsive.

She was rushed to St Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Centre in Phoenix, where she was placed on life support but unfortunately passed on. Mike, who was in Las Vegas then, flew back to Phoenix after this sad news reached him.
