MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (CBS) — Park rangers have brought in ground-penetrating radar to help determine why a 6-year-old boy plunged 11 feet under the sands of Mount Baldy at the Indiana Dunes a week ago.
WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports Nathan Woessner was improving at the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital on Thursday, his condition upgraded from critical to serious, and his breathing tube removed.
He fell into a hole as he and his father were climbing Mount Baldy, and he was buried 11 feet below the surface for nearly four hours before rescuers could get him out. He was trapped in an air pocket that kept him from suffocating.
