They thanked everyone involved with rescuing Nathan and keeping him alive after the ordeal.

Gregg Woessner described the scene as “utter chaos” as he and the father of one of Nathan’s friends dug with their hands, frantically trying to get to the boy before authorities arrived on the scene.

Doctors say Nathan should be back home by the end of this week.

“Nathan is listed as in good condition and continues to improve. He returns to a regular diet today and can leave his room to visit the playroom,” said Dr. Diana Mitchell, Nathan’s physician at Comer Children’s Hospital.
