LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 911 call reveals people pleading for help as they try desperately to save Olympic skier Bode Miller's 19-month-old daughter from drowning in a backyard swimming pool.

    Emeline Miller died at an Orange County hospital Sunday, a day after being pulled from the pool in suburban Coto de Caza.

    The call was released Tuesday by the Orange County Fire Authority.

    It begins with a woman screaming frantically, "Hurry," as a dispatcher asks for the location of the emergency.

    He's told Emeline fell into the pool, isn't breathing and has no pulse.

    The dispatcher then spends several minutes instructing people gathered around her on what to do until emergency vehicles arrive.

    At one point, a man says he believes he feels a pulse as a woman shouts, "Come on, baby, come on, Emmy."
