Last year, the headlines of every major newspaper told of the tragic drowning of Olympic skier Bode Miller’s 19-month-old daughter, Emeline. The toddler fell into a pool in a neighbor’s backyard, and was unable to be resuscitated by paramedics. Emeline’s mother, former pro volleyball player Morgan Beck Miller, wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post, “Drowning is the NUMBER ONE cause of death in children ages 1-4. We talk about vaccinations, car seats, organic foods, screen time, etc at length…but not the number one risk your childrens’ lives face…a silent killer. It takes SECONDS. Please share and help us spread awareness. It’s the first step to preventing these types of tragedies.”
