The toddler of legendary ski racer Bode Miller has drowned in a neighbour's swimming pool.

Posting a collection of pictures and videos showing 19-month-old Emmy, Bode wrote: 'We are beyond devastated.

'Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday.

He continued, "Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten". In his Instagram post, Miller asked for privacy for his family.

A spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff's Department said that the death is still under investigation at this time. Miller and Morgan, a model and professional beach voleyball player, married in 2012 after dating for some time.

Emergency services arrived on the scene as quickly as possible, including Orange County Fire. Many of Bode's fans were quick to comment on the photo to send their well wishes to the family during this incredibly hard time.

"I think they worked on the baby for a long time", but could not save her, Bommarito said.

Miller confirmed the sad news in a heartbreaking Instagram post. He won one gold, three silver and two bronze medals over three Olympic games.
