Bode Miller and Morgan Beck Detail Pain of Daughter's Tragic Death in Emotional Interview
Their family tragedy had "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie in tears.
Heartbreaking new video of Olympic skier Bode Miller's daughter Emeline swimming in a pool and enjoying her life was shared on “Today” show Monday, as Miller and wife Morgan Beck explained the intense guilt they feel over the 19-month-old's death.
The family shared the memories during a tearful interview where they talked about the child’s June drowning death.
"There's not a day that goes by that I don't pray for the opportunity to go back to that day and make it different," Beck told "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie. "But now we have this opportunity to make other parents' days different."
Beck said she was visiting a neighbor's house when she suddenly realized her 19-month-old daughter was not around. The neighbor’s pool was not fenced in.
"All of the sudden, it was just too quiet for me," Beck recalled. "We're in mid-conversation and I stood up. And I turned and I went right to where the boys were and I said, 'Where's Emmy?'"
Moments later, she spotted her daughter floating in the pool.
She began CPR while the neighbor called 911.
Miller was at a softball game with their eldest daughter when he was notified.
“The doctor said her brain had just not had enough oxygen for too long of a time," he said.
Beck is currently pregnant with the couple's third child, who is due in October.
"That was my first concern," Beck said. "Besides the fact of never being able to see my daughter again, it was, every time, how am I supposed to bring a new baby into this world without — with just losing my baby?"
The family says they are now on a mission to ensure their tragedy won't happen to another family.
“Guilt is a very painful thing,” Beck said. “And even though it's awful and living with it is terrible, and I hope and pray and beg that it gets easier, I am now much more aware in that area to make sure it doesn't ever happen again."
