Tyson's Daughter


Boxer Mike Tyson's 4 year old daughter is still on life support after she was found with her neck caught in the cord of a treadmill machine at the family home.

Apparently, her 7 year old brother found her on the treadmill with her neck in the cord.

Police are saying that she either slipped, or put her head inside the loop of the cord. Either way she is in "extremely critical condition."

Ok, I will be the first to say it.

Why was the 4 year old girl playing on a treadmill unattended?

Tyson was out of town, but the child’s mother was in the house, and apparently the 7 year old brother was not watching the child either, until he found her unconscious.

I hope she makes it, and comes through unscarred.

However, tragic accidents happen every day.

This one could have (and should have) been avoided.
