“We are beyond devastated. Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday. Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this. Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to it’s fullest everyday. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time,” Bode wrote on his Instagram.

Bode has three older children and he and Morgan are currently expecting a baby.

    The kind of news that makes me sad.

    How does a 19 month old get out of an adult’s sight long enough to get to a pool and drown? Very sad.

  • Danae

    “Long enough” in case of drowning can equal seconds. It’s a quick and silent death…

    Deeply saddening news. My condolences go out to their family.

  • Stoni

    Beautiful little girl. My heart goes out to them. So sad.

    People don’t respect how dangerous water is to small children until they hear something like this. Young children should never, ever be around water without an adult’s eyes on them at all times. I hope this horrible story makes other parents watch more closely this summer.

    Toddlers are magicians. All it takes is the blink of an eye for something to happen to them.

  • GroundControl500

    Exactly. Which is why you have to watch them constantly especially when known hazards are around. No one said parenting is easy.

    couldn’t have happened to a worse guy. #karma
