19-month-old Emeline Miller, the daughter of Bode Miller, still had a pulse when she was taken out of a neighbor’s swimming pool.
The little tot had been underwater for several minutes but was still thriving to live when she was pulled out of the pool.
An audio recording of the 911 call was obtained by ABC News and was released on June 12, 2018.
A panicking female caller told the emergency operator that the baby was not breathing when she was removed from the pool during a party at around 6:30 p.m. in California on June 9th.
Frantically, the woman told the operator that Emeline fell in the pool
When asked how long the baby was underwater, a man spoke in the background and said “a couple of minutes.”
He then added that he felt a small pulse. “I need an oxygen machine, like, now!’’ the man shouted.
Firefighters arrived on the scene after five minutes and brought the baby to an Orange County hospital. On June 11th, she was pronounced dead.
Miller, an Olympic skier, shared the tragic news of his daughter’s death on Instagram the next day.
Morgan Beck, Emeline’s mother, also revealed the news to her followers, writing, ‘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.’
The pair went on to ask privacy from the public during such a trying time.
