(ABC NEWS)- A heartbreaking 911 call has been released detailing the chaotic moments after former Olympic skier Bode Miller’s daughter fell in a pool. The 19-month-old girl named Emmy died the next day.

“The baby fell in the pool!” the distressed 911 caller told the dispatcher on Saturday.
Someone is heard saying that Emmy had a small pulse.

The dispatcher instructed those with Emmy to roll her on her side to get the water out.
“Come on, baby girl,” someone is heard saying on the call. “Come on, Emmy!”

 

Emmy had been with her mother, professional beach volleyball player Morgan Beck Miller, at a neighbor’s home Saturday when the 19-month old got away, the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) said.

 

 

The paramedics arrived and the child was taken to Mission Hospital in grave condition, OCFA said.

“We are beyond devastated,” the Millers said in a statement on Monday. “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 every day. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time.”
