Olympian, wife speak about child’s death

Olympic skier Bode

Miller and his wife, Morgan, hope that by talk­ing about their 19-month-old daugh­ter’s drown­ing death, they can pre­vent other par­ents from ex­pe­ri­enc­ing such heart­break. The cou­ple ap­peared in their first pub­lic in­ter­view Mon­day on NBC’s

To­day show.

Morgan de­scribed vis­it­ing her neigh­bour’s home with their chil­dren in June when she re­al­ized that daugh­ter Emmy was miss­ing.

She saw a sliver of light com­ing from the door lead­ing to the back­yard and said her “heart sank.” She opened the door and saw her child float­ing in the pool.

Their child died the next day at a hos­pi­tal. Bode Miller said her brain went too long with­out oxy­gen.
