Exodus Tyson (March 2005 — May 26, 2009)

Exodus Tyson was the daughter of former boxing champion Mike Tyson and Sol Xochitl. Residing in Phoenix, in May 2009, 4-year-old Exodus became entangled in a power cord dangling from a treadmill in a home gym. The treadmill had not been in use nor plugged in at the time. Exodus was discovered with the cord wrapped around her neck by her seven-year-old brother Miguel. Xochitl tried to revive the child before emergency services arrived. Despite being rushed to hospital and put on life support, she was pronounced dead at noon on May 26. At the time of the tragic accident, Mike was in Las Vegas on business. No one knows how long little Exodus had been trapped in the cord before her brother found her.
