STERLING, Ill. The parents of a 6-year-old Illinois boy who survived being buried under a sand dune in Indiana say their son's recovery is a miracle and they're grateful for the support they've received.

The son of Faith and Greg Woessner was released last week from La Rabida Children's Hospital. Faith Woessner tells Sauk Valley Media that she can't give enough credit to the people who rescued her son and helped him recover.

Doctors say the boy, Nathan, underwent physical, occupational and speech therapy. They say he was seen for issues with balance, gait and memory.

He's scheduled to return for more rehabilitation.

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.
