A man has been upgraded from critical to serious condition following an industrial accident this morning in Kapolei.

Bryan Cheplic, spokesman for the city Emergency Services Department, said paramedics were sent out on the call about 8:45 a.m. They were told the man, believed to be in his 50s, was injured when a high-pressure hydraulic hose burst near a metal fitting.
Cheplic said the man was treated and stabilized at the scene before being transported to the trauma center.
