The pre-schooler was hospitalized and put on life support yesterday when she was found with her neck wrapped in the cable of the exercise machine by her seven-year-old brother.
The boy got his mom from another room, and the woman freed the girl, called an ambulance and tried to revive her.
Tyson, who doesn’t live in the Phoenix house, arrived yesterday afternoon from Las Vegas and was filmed by television news cameras entering the hospital where Exodus was being treated.
The family released this statement today:
“We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world”
“There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus. 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.”
Police believe that either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and was obviously unable to get herself off of it.
Our hearts go out to this family.
