(WSVN/CNN) - Two boaters were rescued off the coast of Miami-Dade County on Wednesday after being adrift for two days.

A good Samaritan made the call to authorities when he saw the boaters off Haulover Beach.

 

The rescuers said the boaters looked “sunburned” and “weathered.” The U.S. Coast Guard responded and transferred the men to their boat.

The Coast Guard towed the inoperative boat to Haulover Marina.

Officials have not yet released the men’s names. They are said to be OK.
