Emmy Miller was found unconscious at a neighbour's home in Orange County, southern California, and doctors were unable to revive her.

Mr Miller is the most successful skier in US history, with six Olympic medals including gold at the 2010 Games.

The 40-year-old and his wife Morgan, a professional beach volleyball player, were at a party on Saturday night when the incident happened.

Paramedics took the baby girl to hospital but could not save her.

"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," Mr Miller added.
