Firefighters lassoed a pontoon boat on the Milwaukee River Wednesday after it had floated about eight miles from its home in Thiensville. 

Firefighters were able to finally get the boat out of the rushing flood waters near Kletzsch Park. 

TODAY'S TMJ4 showed the same boat initially being swept away Monday before the boat made its eight-mile journey.
