iStock/Thinkstock(NIAGARA FALLS, NY) — Two people were rescued from a disabled boat that was drifting dangerously close to Niagara Falls, authorities said.

The U.S. Coast Guard said the boaters weren’t in “dire” danger but had floated into the “exclusion zone,” about a mile from the brink of the falls, in the Niagara River.

A Coast Guard helicopter hoisted them to safety late Monday, around midnight. There were no injuries.

The boaters, who did not want to be identified, were in a 19-foot motor boat and had dropped anchor.

Earlier, a commercial rescuer tried to help but got caught on the rocks in the shallow water.

The boat was salvaged by a local company.
