A pair of boaters experienced some trouble Tuesday morning when they found themselves out in Lake Michigan without enough gas to get back. The two men were about two miles off shore when they ran out of fuel. They used their mobile phone to call in to say they were drifting north and needed help.

The Chicago's Police's Marine Unit responded and the boat was towed into shore. The men were able to fuel up and went on their way.
