The six-year-old boy rescued from a sand hole last week has been upgraded to good condition. His doctor said he continues to improve.
Nathan Woessner was able to get out of bed Friday and walk with assistance. He was also able to eat for the first time since the incident.
His grandfather told the Michigan City News Dispatch that Woessner was sitting up and watching cartoons.
The boy was in critical condition until Friday when he was upgraded to serious condition.
He is expected to make a full neurological recovery but may suffer lingering lung problems from inhaling sand.
Woessner spent hours trapped under 11 feet of sand at Mount Baldy. He was taken to Comer's Children's Hospital in Chicago for treatment.
