Mike Tyson's Daughter Exodus Tyson, 4 , Was Found Hanging From a Cord on Exercise Treadmill

Exodus Tyson, the 4-year-old daughter of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is reportedly in critical condition at a Phoenix hospital after she was found hanging from a cord from an exercise treadmill.

Officials from the Phoenix Fire Department told ABC News affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix that a woman called 911 just after 10:30 a.m. today to report an electrocution from a treadmill cord.

But she changed her story during the call, saying instead that there had been a hanging, officials said.

When firefighters arrived at the house, they found a woman performing CPR on the girl, KNXV reported. The fire department members took over for the woman, and then took the girl to St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Hill told KNXV it appeared that the treadmill cord had been wrapped around the child's neck.

Police said they believe that the incident was an accident.

The girl's 7-year-old brother reportedly told police he found the girl hanging from a cord on the treadmill.

Police said the child's mother ran into the room and freed her from the cord before starting CPR.

Tyson, the subject of a new documentary by James Toback, arrived at the hospital late this afternoon, but did not speak to reporters as he walked into the building.

"He's a really nice guy, definitely a guy I don't want anything bad happening to him, so I hope it is an accident, and I'm pretty sure it probably is an accident, and I hope everything works out," said neighbor Shafiq Khalik. "It's very tragic."
