Our hearts go out to Mike Tyson and his family tonight, as the Phoenix, Ariz., Police Department has issued the sad statement that his 4-year-old daughter has been declared dead following a tragic in-home accident.

"Exodus Tyson was pronounced deceased at 11:45 AM today at the hospital," reads the statement, first posted on "Our sympathies go out to the family."

The heavyweight champ's little girl had been listed in critical condition at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix after she was found dangling from a treadmill power cord in the Tyson family's home gym. Mike was in Las Vegas at the time but flew back immediately to be by his daughter's side.
