The frantic call came into 911. “My baby, she’s choked!”

Sol Xochitl, the ex-lover of boxing legend Mike Tyson, had just found their 4-year-old daughter hanging by the neck from an electrical wire inside her central Phoenix home. As Xochitl begged for emergency crews to hurry to the house, she could be heard counting out CPR pumps on little Exodus Tyson’s lifeless chest. “One, two, three, four…”

Her efforts ultimately could not revive the girl. Exodus was pronounced dead a little more than 24 hours later at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.

Now, the drama of those few panicked moments Monday has emerged through police statements and a transcript of the call Xochitl made to 911. They show the young mom remained focused on trying to save her daughter as the girl quickly expired.
