The wife of Olympic skier Bode Miller has shared a heart-wrenching photo of the couple’s dying toddler in hopes they can prevent other parents from experiencing a similar tragedy.

Morgan Miller shared a photo on Instagram on Friday showing as she held 19-month-old Emmy, who was hooked up to wires and tubes in the hospital.

Little Emeline was found floating in the water of a neighbour’s pool in Orange County, California. She died the following day on June 10.

In the emotional Instagram post she writes:

“I wish I could have one more day to hold you, but until that day comes, continue to work through me and give me the strength to bring awareness, my love,” the post read.

“I told you as I held you in this moment that you could still change the world, you could still move mountains.”

“Every step we take forward is because of you and Levi. Your footprint will forever be left on this world. I love you, My baby girl,” the mother wrote.

The couple are determined to raise as much awareness as possible about being vigilant around water.

So heartbreaking. Our thoughts are with them.

  • Oh gosh it’s so sad and real looking at the photo.. rip,little angel


  • This is just so sad and another little life lost :(


  • The message is important but Im not sure sharing the photo – invading a very private moment – was necessary.


  • This is so so sad! I really feel for the family but I didn’t really need to see the photo of the poor child. It’s a very traumatic thing to see.


  • Oh sweetie! :-(
