DID MIKE TYSON HIT A PLANE PASSENGER?

Tyson recently hit the headlines after a video of him hitting a plane passenger repeatedly surfaced on the internet. According to Tyson's representative, the passenger was harassing him and even threw a water bottle at him.

The alleged victim, Melvin George Townsend III, denied throwing any bottle. His attorney claimed that "Tyson became agitated by an overly excited fan and began to strike him. This situation could have been avoided simply by contacting a flight attendant."

HOW DID MIKE TYSON'S DAUGHTER DIE?

In 2009, Tyson experienced tragedy when his four-year-old daughter, Exodus, died during a treadmill accident in their home. Her brother, Miguel, found her hanging on a cord by the workout equipment and was placed on life support.

Sadly, she passed away at a Phoenix hospital. Tyson, who was in Las Vegas, flew to Phoenix after learning of the incident. He took his daughter's death hard. Sgt. Andy Hill said:

“Somehow, she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console. It's kind of a loop. 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.”

According to a statement, Exodus's mother cleaned their residence, thinking her daughter was in the playroom. She asked her son to check up on Exodus before discovering the child and calling 911.

During his second marriage with Monica Turner, the boxer welcomed two more children, Rayna and Amir.

Following her death, the retired boxer changed his lifestyle for the better. The incident moved Tyson to become a better father, admitting that he hadn't done a good job in the past. In a previous interview, Tyson said he was no longer the same man people knew three decades ago.
