MPD Investigating Fatal Labor Day Boat Crash

The Milwaukee Police are investigating a fatal boat crash that happened around  10:40 p.m. on September 7 on the break wall just north of the main gap (straight out from the Hoan Bridge).  Nearby witnesses reported hearing a crash and shortly after people calling for help.  A 22-year-old woman and a 23-year-old woman were rescued from the break wall and were transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  Around 12:20 a.m., two male victims were recovered near their partially submerged boat by members of the Milwaukee Fire Department Dive Rescue Team.  Both victims were declared deceased at the scene and have not yet been identified.  Our investigation into this incident is ongoing.
