The four-year-old daughter of former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has died, a day after what police in Arizona called a "tragic accident" in her home.
Police said Exodus Tyson was pronounced dead in a hospital just before noon on Tuesday, local time.
The girl was playing on a treadmill on Monday in her Phoenix home when her head apparently slipped inside a cord hanging under the console.
Her seven-year-old brother found her and alerted his mother.
Police and firefighters tried to resuscitate Exodus on the way to hospital.
Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident and flew to Phoenix on Monday.
Police said Exodus either slipped or put her head in the loop of the cord.
Her mother freed her from the cord, called the emergency services and tried to revive her.
Tyson was seen entering the hospital after arriving in Phoenix. His spokeswoman Cynthia Schwartz said the family had not yet arranged a funeral.
Later in a statement the Tyson family said: "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 to try to help each other heal."
