Authorities identify 2 men found dead in Lake Michigan after boat crash in Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE — Authorities have released the names of two men who were found dead after a boat crashed on a break wall in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office identified the men as 35-year-old Nick Kukoljac and 28-year-old Juston Segura, both of Milwaukee. Police say the crash happened around 10:40 p.m. Monday in Lake Michigan near the Hoan Bridge.

Milwaukee assistant fire chief Dan Lipski says two women clinging to wreckage were rescued. He says divers later recovered the men's bodies on the bottom of the lake, in water about 20 feet deep.

Cmdr. Leanne Lusk with Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan says nobody involved in the crash was wearing a life jacket.
