MILLSBORO, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Delaware Fish and Wildlife Natural Resources Police say they were able to stop an unmanned, runaway boat after its drivers fell into the water.

Officials said a mother and her two children were riding on the Indian River Bay near the Paradise Grill area on Friday, July 19, when the driver lost control of the boat. In a Facebook post , the agency said the drivers were "thrown off" the boat, which was pulling a tube.

In a video posted by wildlife officials, the empty boat and tube can be seen sailing in circles while a police boat is able to pull up alongside it and an official dangles out to hit the kill switch. Officials did not identify the passengers.

There were no reported injuries.
