(CNN) — Some off-duty public safety workers ended up with an unusual catch when they went fishing off the coast of Florida on Saturday morning.
They found a man and woman splashing in the water 7 miles from shore who said they'd spent the last 14 hours treading water, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said.
Sean McGovern, 50, and Mellisa Morris, 52, said they'd fallen off their boat in Key Largo about 6 p.m. Friday. The boat was in gear, and they watched it pull away from them, the sheriff's department said.
