ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Fire officials have rescued two boaters who were drifting on a distressed boat near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.
Firefighters say both boaters are okay and left the scene as soon as they reached shore. 
Officials say the boat lost power and drifted south towards the Columbia Bottoms Conservation Area, just north of the Chain of Rocks Bridge.
Officials add that cell phone contact helped them reach the boaters in the dark conditions.
No injuries were reported.
