A firefighter who went in to save three workers who collapsed while working underground in Key Largo is expected to be released from the hospital soon, his family says.

Leonardo Moreno has been a firefighter for eight years. As of Tuesday, he was still in Jackson Memorial Hospital and is expected to be there for another four days.

Family and friends say Moreno is doing better and is no longer in an induced coma.

“Even when he was sedated he was reacting, responding, waking up so we’re hopeful that everything is going to come out great,” said his brother Yoel Moreno.
