Skier Bode Miller's 19-Month-Old DrownsJune 12, 2018 11:51am

A tragic turn of events for former Olympic skier Bode Miller: He and wife Morgan Beck Miller said Monday that their second child, a 19-month-old named Emmy, has drowned.

ABC News reports Beck Miller and Emmy were at a neighbor's home in Orange County, Calif., on Saturday evening when the girl wandered away. She was reportedly found in the pool of the Coto de Caza home; Beck Miller jumped in and resuscitation efforts began as 911 was called around 6:30pm.

Emmy was taken to the hospital in grave condition and died Sunday night. "They had no pulses the whole way," said Capt. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority per ESPN.

"It didn't end well."

Miller posted a series of photos of the girl on Instagram along with one video in which Beck Miller kisses the girl's cheek repeatedly, with Emmy saying, "Hi Dada," each time.

The caption reads: "We are beyond devastated. Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday. Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this. Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to it's [sic] fullest every day. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time." Miller, 40, and Beck Miller, 31, married in 2012.

They have a 3-year-old son, Nash, and Beck Miller is due with the couple's third child in October. Miller has two children from prior relationships. Miller is the most successful American male skier, with 33 World cup wins, four world championships, and six Olympic medals to his name.
