BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

Beaufort Fire Fighters rescued a mother and daughter after their kayak got stuck in the mud in the Beaufort River.

A mother and daughter from Philadelphia went out kayaking Wednesday afternoon. They got about a mile and a half outside of the marina, up into the marsh when the tide went out from under them.

The pair was stuck in the mud for about two hours, but a resident saw them and called for help.

Beaufort Fire Fighters used backboards as platforms for the pair to walk on.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
