NEW BUFFALO, MI (AP) -

Authorities have 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 Sunday. 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.
