Share this post

A 6 year old Illinois boy was discharged Tuesday from the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital. According to a hospital statement, Nathan Woessner will continue receiving rehabilitative therapy elsewhere over the next several days. Less than two-weeks ago, July 12th, the Sterling boy became buried under eleven-feet of sand for more than three hours at Mt Baldy. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore officials say Mount Baldy is closed indefinitely as they try to determine why a hole opened up in the sand and as they look to see if there any other similar dangers at the park.
