A father and daughter apparently drowned at Makapuu Point this afternoon, police said.

They were wearing swim gear, police said.

Someone at the top of the cliff called 911 after spotting two bodies in waters near some tidal pools below, Capt. Gary Lum of the Honolulu Fire Department said.

Firefighters and paramedics retrieved the bodies with help from the Honolulu Fire Department helicopter, Lum said.
