KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - A California man has been released from a Hawaii hospital after being trapped inside the nook of a cave for 40 minutes.

West Hawaii Today reports Raymond Moreno was rescued Thursday after a Sea Quest tour boat saw his family frantic onshore.

Raymond Moreno's wife, Valerie, says Raymond was released from the Kona Community Hospital Friday afternoon. He suffered a concussion and swallowed a lot of seawater. Doctors were able to clear his lungs.

The Morenos have been on a family vacation with their three children, ages 13, 7 and 4.
