HOUSTON -- The crew of a fishing boat returned two kayakers to safety after strong winds pushed them out to sea off High Island, Texas.

One of the distressed kayakers contacted Coast Guard watchstanders around 11:30 a.m. Friday by radio saying that strong winds were preventing them from reaching shore.

The crew of the fishing boat World Freedom was in the vicinity of the kayakers and pulled them to safety.
