The Moline Fire Department was called to rescue two people stranded on the Mississippi River on Tuesday morning, October 22, 2013.

Officials say their sail boat got stuck when it ran into a lateral dam.

According to officials, the boaters left LeClaire, Iowa in the morning, continuing their voyage to sail the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico.

They say conditions were foggy which caused limited visibility.

Snow was also falling Tuesday morning.

Officials say they rescued the boaters and left the boat on the dam.

They say the boat will be dealt with later.
