In a preview of the full interview, the couple sat down with host Savannah Guthrie and sent a warning to other parents of how quickly tragedy can happen.

“It’s unbelievably quick,” Bode expressed. “You’d think it’d be some weird circumstance or some strange thing. And it’s not. It just happens in the blink of an eye.”

In June, the Olympic skier and his wife, professional beach volleyball player Morgan Beck Miller, lost their daughter Emeline after she fell into a pool during a neighbour’s party.

Although adults were nearby, Emeline managed to sneak through a back door. Moments later, her parents found her in the pool and took her straight to the hospital where she died the following day.

“A child under 30 pounds can drown in 30 seconds,” Beck Miller said as tears welled up in her eyes. “And I just keep counting to 30 in my head. That was all I needed.”

Following their daughter’s passing, the couple broke the heartbreaking news on social media. Since then, they’ve shared a number of photos and messages on Instagram, hoping to bring awareness and prevent these kinds of tragedies from happening to other parents.

“It’s one of those things where, when you go to someone’s house, survey the home to see if it’s a safe place for your child to be,” Morgan said.

The full interview with Bode and Morgan Miller airs exclusively Monday on “Today”.
