MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) - Gov. Mike Pence is expected to attend an event in
Michigan City later this month honoring those involved in rescuing a
6-year-old boy who became trapped under 11 feet of sand when a section of
The News-Dispatch of Michigan City reports the family of Nathan Woessner of
Sterling, Ill., has been invited to the Aug. 28 event. Nathan was rescued
after being buried for more than three hours on July 12 in a dune called
Mount Baldy at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
Nathan was released last month from La Rabida Children’s Hospital. Doctors
said he underwent physical, occupational and speech therapy. He’s scheduled
to return for more rehabilitation.
On Monday, the Michigan City Fire Department honored firefighters involved
in the rescue.
