She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead a day after the incident.
Bode and his wife confirmed their daughter’s death via social media:
“We are beyond devastated. 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 its fullest everyday.”
