Bode Miller's Toddler Drowned in 'Very Short Amount of Time'June 13, 2018 11:23am

"I have a small pulse. I have a small pulse," a man says in a harrowing 911 call released after the death of Olympic skier Bode Miller's 19-month-old daughter.

"I need an oxygen machine here. Like now." Earlier in the call, a woman says the girl has no pulse after falling into a backyard pool and asks the dispatcher to coach her on performing CPR, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Come on baby girl," the man can be heard saying. Orange County, Calif., Fire Capt. Tony Bommarito says paramedics continued trying to revive little Emmy Miller on the way to the hospital but they were unable to save her.

The toddler was the youngest child of Miller and wife Morgan Beck Miller. Fire Capt. Steve Concialdi tells People that the tragedy happened around 6:30pm Saturday at the home of one of the Millers' neighbors.



Concialdi says Emmy wandered away while her mother was talking to a neighbor in Coto de Caza. "She was only missing for just a short amount of time and Mom turned and was looking for her and didn’t see her right next to her,” he says. "Mom went straight to the backyard to where the pool was.

The child was in the pool. The mom pulled out the little girl and they started CPR immediately." He says drowning has been confirmed as the cause of death, and Emmy died despite having only been in the water a "very short amount of time." The department posted water safety reminders on its Facebook page Tuesday. In a tweet, the US Ski and Snowboard team said it had learned of the tragedy with "utmost sadness." The thoughts and prayers of the team and "everyone across the whole snowsports world are with Bode, his wife Morgan, and their family at this time," the team said.
