KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A father and daughter had to be rescued after their canoe tipped over in the Missouri River.

The entire thing happened near the Bond Bridge.

An official with the water rescue crew on scene said the daughter ended up stuck underneath the bridge and her father floated about 40 minutes away to the boat ramp.

The daughter had the paddle and used it to get someone's attention. That passerby called 911.

Both were wearing life jackets. Officials say they are expected to be fine, but they are shaken up.
