Midway Fire Rescue jet skis are bringing a pair of kayakers who were reportedly in “distress” after overturning in the ocean Sunday back to shore, according to a department tweet.

Pawleys Island police, who initially tweeted about the incident, said the incident happened at “the south inlet.”

Midway Fire Rescue sent out rescue jet skis from the beach in pursuit of the distressed kayakers a little before 6 p.m. , PIPD tweeted. The agency said the people were estimated to be about a mile off shore.
