Former downhill ski racer Bode Miller is mourning the tragic death of his youngest child, 19-month-old daughter Emeline Grier Miller. Emeline drowned in a pool in the neighborhood of Coto de Caza, California, on Sunday. Paramedics rushed to the scene and performed CPR before transporting her to a nearby hospital where she was unable to be resuscitated. • Miller is a six-time Olympic medalist (1 gold, 3 silvers, 2 bronzes), winning gold in the super combined at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. He last competed at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
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 it’s fullest everyday. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time.
