NEW BUFFALO, Mich. (AP) — Authorities Sunday rescued two teenagers who fell asleep on a raft and drifted 300 yards from shore in Lake Michigan.

The Berrien County sheriff’s office in southwestern Michigan says the 14-year-old girls had no paddles or life jackets but they had a phone. They called their parents who called police.

Police and fire departments from three townships, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard, responded. The teens were rescued in good shape.
