St. Petersburg, Florida -- Coast Guard crewmembers rescued two kayakers stranded underneath Gandy Bridge early Thursday morning.

Luckily, the men had a cell phone to call police for help after their paddle drifted away from them.

Tampa Police then called on the St. Pete Sector of the Coast Guard who arrived a short time later around 1:25 a.m. and helped get the men ashore to reunite with family members.

Neither were injured.
