Sand Dune Rescuers to be Honored

Share this post

There's word today that Indiana Governor Mike Pence may attend a ceremony in northwest Indiana honoring those who rescued a six-year-old boy from a sand hole at Mount Baldy last month. Date and location are still being worked out, according to an article in today's Times.
Equipment, like ground-penetrating radar, to help try to determine why a section of the giant sand dune in Michigan City collapsed last month burying the child for nearly four hours before he was rescued, might be available and on-site at the park in the next week. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Superintendent Costa Dillon, who retires at the end of the month, says in 35 years of park service, he has never come across an incident quite like it.  Mount Baldy's beach, trails, and parking area remain closed to the public until further notice.  You can hear our Region Newsmakers interview with Costa Dillon online at our website.
