Olympic Skier Bode Miller's 19-Month-Old Daughter, Emeline Miller, Drowns in Swimming Pool
The most decorated U.S. male skier has asked that his family be given privacy.
Bode Miller, America's most decorated male skier, suffered a tragic personal loss over the weekend when his young daughter drowned in a swimming pool.
At just 19 months old, Emeline Miller was found unresponsive in the Southern California pool and rushed to a hospital Saturday.
She died Sunday after attempts to revive her failed.
"We are beyond devastated," Miller said in an Instagram post. "Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this."
Emmy, as she was known in the family, was one of four children 40-year-old Miller had with his beach volleyball pro wife, Morgan.
They are expecting their fifth child in October.
On Monday night, the U.S. Ski & Snowboard team tweeted condolences to Miller and his family.
"It is with the utmost sadness that we learned today of the passing of @MillerBode's daughter Emmy. The thoughts and prayers of everyone at U.S. Ski & Snowboard and across the whole snowsports world are with Bode, his wife Morgan and their family at this time," the team wrote.
As he and his family mourn, Miller has posted photos of Emmy to share with the world the beautiful, playful girl whose life was cut so short.
"Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten," Miller wrote.
