CRANSTON, R.I. -

The sole survivor of a boating accident in Westport has been released from the hospital.

Lorraine Lubiejewski, the wife of Dr. Gregg Angell, told NBC 10 on Friday that her husband's still suffering from frostbite on his knees.

Angell and two friends were duck hunting Tuesday in the Westport River when their skiff capsized.

Steven James, 53, of Marshfield, Mass., and Robert Becher, 55, of Cromwell, Conn., died.

Lubiejewski said her husband is suffering from survivor's remorse.

Massachusetts State Police released video Friday of Angell's rescue. The police air wing and dive team assisted in the rescue and recovery efforts.

The video shows a Coast Guard helicopter hoisting Angell to safety.
