Bode Miller’s young daughter, who drowned in a California swimming pool over the weekend, had been underwater for several minutes before she was pulled out, according to an emotional 911 call made during the tragedy.
The highly decorated Olympic skier and his family were at a neighbor’s home in Orange County Saturday, when 19-month-old Emeline Grier Miller was found in the water, a woman is heard telling the 911 operator.
Emeline had been in the water "a couple of minutes" and the person performing CPR on the little girl could at one point feel a “small pulse," but she wasn’t breathing, the woman said during the five-minute call.
“C’mon baby girl!” the woman could be heard saying repeatedly.
The call ended as emergency responders arrived at the home, where they too performed CPR before rushing her to a nearby hospital.
But attempts to save Emeline were unsuccessful and she died Sunday.
"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, was the youngest of Miller’s four children.
She was going to be a big sister, as her mother Morgan Beck, a professional beach volleyball player, announced she was pregnant two months ago.
“Checking out baby with my other baby,” Miller captioned a photo of her kissing Emeline while getting an ultrasound.
Authorities said Emeline's death remains under investigation.
