Exodus Tyson, the 4-year-old daughter of boxer Mike Tyson, died Tuesday after she was taken off life support. The young girl was found hanging from a treadmill cable by her 7-year-old brother Monday and rushed to a Phoenix-area hospital.

"There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus," the family said in a statement. "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."
This is another sad turn of events for the 42-year-old former heavyweight champion, who has seen his share of heartache -- some of them self-inflicted -- in his lifetime.

"The Tyson family would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks for all your prayers and support, and we ask that we be allowed our privacy at this difficult time," the boxer said in a statement.

Seems her name "Exodus" was quite appropriate and prophetic. Who says names don't mean anything anymore??
