A man and a three-year-old girl have died after falling 50-foot from a waterfall into a river in North Wales.

A massive underwater search for the pair was launched when they were reported missing after venturing into the waterfall at a scenic spot.

"This tragic incident highlights the dangers of swimming in unknown waters," Alan Edwards, community safety manager for North Wales Fire and Rescue service, told Sky News.

The pair, thought to be a 33-year-old father and his daughter who were on vacation and staying at a nearby campsite, were reported missing at around 8 a.m.

Fire service search teams were joined by the police helicopter and ambulance crews and assisted by two trained divers, who happened to be in the area at the time.

The two bodies were found shortly before 1 p.m.
