Emmy Miller, 19-month-old daughter of Olympic alpine ski racer Bode Miller, died on Monday in a hospital after a Sunday pool accident.
According to TMZ, “The Orange County Coroner’s Office confirms Emeline Grier Miller passed away in a hospital. A source close to the family tells us Bode and his wife, Morgan, were attending a neighbor’s party on Sunday — and, somehow, Emeline ended up in a pool.”
According to the Bleacher Report, Emmy was the youngest of Bode Miller’s four children; he has two sons and another daughter.
Miller posted to Instagram on Monday saying, “We are beyond devastated. Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday. Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this. Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to its fullest everyday. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time.”
Miller won six Olympic medals across five winter Olympic Games. The most decorated American Olympic skier in history, Miller retired just ahead of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games.
Our thoughts are with Bode and Morgan during this time.
