I can’t believe that we’re just now finally getting to this, but Mike Tyson’s four-year-old daughter apparently died while the former undisputed boxing champion was in Vegas. From People:

“We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world,” Tyson says in a statement. “There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus. We ask you now to please respect our need at this very difficult time for privacy to grieve and try to help each other heal.”

Exodus’s mother, whose name has not been released, was cleaning in another part of the house when she sent her 7-year-old son to the playroom to check on his sister. The boy found Exodus tangled in a cord dangling from a treadmill. He called for his mother, who dialed 911 and administered CPR.

Wow, that 7-year-old boy is a horrible babysitter. “Uh, mom, I just found her like that.” And I love how the mother was “cleaning.” Since when does a mother with two kids not put them to work? This really isn’t the time to be making jokes, though. However, this is the time that you could get a really sweet deal on a treadmill.
