Sand dune rescuers to be honored in Michigan City
Michigan City, Indiana will pay special tribute today to the rescuers who pulled a 6-year-old boy from a collapsed sand dune last month; and Nathan Woessner plans to be there to thank them personally.
Nathan was playing at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore when he became trapped under 12 feet of sand for more than three hours.
Miraculously, he had enough air to survive; and after two weeks in the hospital, Nathan went home, and now he is starting first grade.
Michigan City plans two events to honor the rescuers — one at City Hall, the other at the Blue Chip Casino.
