Geologists: Holes keep developing where boy was buried alive in NW-Indiana sand dunes

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. - Geologists have found yet another hole while conducting and in-depth study of why a then-6-year-old boy became buried in an Indiana dune on Lake Michigan.

Researchers from the Indiana Geological Survey, Indiana University and IU-Northwest arrived at Mount Baldy in Michigan City, Ind., this week to continue studying what is causing holes on the popular sand dune.

Indiana Geological Survey Assistant Director Todd Thompson said the hole developed Wednesday while researchers were conducting tests on what caused Nathan Woessner to be buried alive in July 2013.

This is the sixth hole that has been found.
