Did you hear about Exodus Tyson?? So sad....

I just went to the Daily Buzz section, and saw an article saying that Mike Tyson's 4 yr old daughter accidentally hung herself with the string dangling from the treadmill! How does something like that happen?? It's so sad! It makes me a little more weary of where my kids are, though.... because Mrs. Tyson was right in the next room cleaning up.

  • I hate to spread bad news... but I was hoping people like you (that own a treadmill) would read this and remove the strap.

  • It happens all the time to parents who leave children un attended. The saying...."i turned my back for only a moment" is BS. It takes several minutes to choke to death and Mrs. Tyson VERY OBVIOUSLY left BOTH kids in another room for WAY to long a time! I feel bad an innocent child lost her life un necessairly, due to a parent who was not watching her small unpredictable kids.
