MAKAPUU HAWAII - A California man who was an experienced surfer and his daughter died after being swept out to sea from tide pools in Hawaii on Saturday. Officials identified the pair as 46-year-old Mark Hornor and 6-year-old Mina Hornor. Both were from Berkeley, California. Emergency crews responded Saturday to reports that the girl fell into the ocean while walking along the rocky shoreline. Officials said her father jumped in to save her before he also was swept away by the waves. Lifeguards found both victims unresponsive and brought them back to shore. They both were taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died.
