LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A boat that capsized Sunday night off Kauai, forcing its owner, his son and an injured guest to swim to shore, has been recovered.

The Garden Island (https://bit.ly/1tfVZGM) reports the 19-foot boat belonging to Zack Romanak was dragged onto a beach at Kekaha and lifted by crane onto his trailer.

Romanak, his 10-year-old son Noah, and guest Brad Warren were trying to reach Kikiaola Small Boat Harbor when a large wave struck the stern and threw them into the ocean.

Warren’s prosthetic hip and leg broke.

After continuing to get pounded by waves, they managed to swim a half hour to shore.

Romanak says he was driving Monday through Kekaha and saw a crowd gathered at his overturned boat near Davidson’s Beach.

Community members helped pull the boat on shore.
