Two killed in late-night boat crash

A boat crashed into a break wall in the Milwaukee harbor late Monday night. Two women were pulled from the water. Two men did not survive.

Witnesses said they heard screams a few hundred yards off shore.

“We ended up finding that the boat had struck the inside of the breakwall and capsized in the process. Initial reports were unclear to how many people were on the boat and where they were,” Milwaukee Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Daniel Lipski told WISN News.
