Officials release 911 call from Emiline Miller’s drowning death

On Tuesday, the Orange County Fire Authority released the 911 call painting a harrowing picture in the moments after Emiline was recovered from the pool. 

Per the Associated Press:

”Yes, hurry. HURRY,” the woman shouts at the beginning of the call released Tuesday.

Asked by a male dispatcher what the emergency is, she tells him a 19-month-old girl fell into a backyard pool, is not breathing and has no pulse.

”We don’t know,” the woman, who sounds near tears, replies when asked how long the girl was in the water.

”Are you doing CPR or do you need me to coach you through it?,” he asks.

”Coach me through it, please,” she replies.

Neither her voice nor others heard on the call are identified.

”I have a small pulse. I have a small pulse,” a man says urgently at one point.

”I need an oxygen machine here. Like now,” he adds.

”Ok. They’re coming as fast as they can,” the dispatcher replies as he continues to give instructions.

”Come on, Emmy. Come on baby girl,” the woman pleads.

As the minutes tick off, the man swears as he asks where the ambulance is.

”They’re on their way. They’ve been on their way for several minutes. Ok? They’re just about there, they’ right there on the street,” he says shortly before emergency sirens are heard.

The situation proved dire once paramedics tried to resuscitate Emiline and rushed her to the hospital.

“They had no pulses the whole way,” OCFA Captain Tony Bommarito Bommarito said. “It didn’t end well.”

Authorities urge pool safety in wake of tragic death

The OFCA used the moment as a chance to raise awareness of pool safety measures on its Facebook page and noted that there have been 13 drowning deaths in Orange County this year, three of them involving children less than five years old.

Bode Miller posted a photo of himself with Emiline Tuesday thanking his followers for “all the love and support.”

Emeline was the youngest of four children for Bode Miller. He and his wife Morgan Beck also have a son together while he has a son and daughter from previous marriages.

Miller is a decorated U.S. skier who has earned six Olympic medals over three Games in Salt Lake City (2002), Vancouver (2010), and Sochi (2014). He earned gold in the super combined in Vancouver and has 33 first-place finishes in World Cup competition. He also has four gold medals in World Championship competition.
