The 19-month-old daughter of U.S. Olympic skier Bode Miller drowned in an Orange County swimming pool, authorities said Monday.
Emeline Miller died at a hospital Sunday, the day after paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive her after the drowning incident.
“We are beyond devastated,” Miller said in an Instagram post that showed several photos of the blond, blue-eyed, chubby-cheeked toddler.
In a video, Emmy, as she was known, was being kissed on the check by her mother, Morgan, a professional beach volleyball player, as she repeatedly said, “Hi Dada.”
