    What does that mean, 'her neck on a cable'? Meaning her head was through a loop? Or her neck was on an electrical cable?

    Either way, horrible story, but really poorly explained.

    I thought it meant she got caught or twisted herself around one of those heart-rate monitors (that are attached to the machine by a cable.) The cables aren't very long, but a 4-year-old's neck isn't very big, either. Very sad story. Hope she pulls through.

    I'm thinking this is likely a cross country skiing machine, not a treadmill. But we'll just have to wait and see.

    The guy had a hard enough life and has gone through so much already. And despite his past pain being primarily self-inflicted, this is so, so sad.

    What an awful accident. We have always been paranoid about things getting twisted around Little ID's neck.

    Didn't know Tyson was married or had a daughter.

    From an updated version (http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/30932524/)

    "Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop," police Sgt. Andy Hill said. "Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it."

    Doesn't mention if Tyson and the mother are married. I can't imagine the horror the mom must have gone through, finding her daughter like that.

    I obviously hope she pulls through.

    I am having a hard time trying to visualize what happened.

    After reading what Don King did to Tyson, it's hard to root against the guy.

    Here's a fact which dropped me to the canvas: His second ex-wife Monica Turner is actually the sister of Michael Steele, he of much discussion across the way.

    Here's hoping little Exodus (her real name) punches 007-373-5963.
