In the 911 audio, an unnamed woman made the call and told the operator that she needed an ambulance. This was after Emeline Grier Miller, 19-months-old, fell into a pool.
The operator could be heard asking the woman if the little girl was breathing. The woman replied negatively to the question
“Come on keep going,” the woman tells a man in the background. This is after she explains to the operator that he was performing CPR on Emeline, the daughter of Bode Miller and Morgane Beck Miller.
The little girl drowned in a pool in the neighborhood of Coto de Caza, California on Saturday. “Come on, girl. Come on baby. Come on baby. Get it out. Come on, honey,” the man could be heard saying.
