Mount Baldy remains closed 6 months after collapse

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) – A popular sand dune along Lake Michigan remains closed to the public more than 6 months after part of it collapsed and buried a young boy from Sterling under 11 feet of sand.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore spokesman Bruce Rowe says the park recently received data on a ground-penetrating radar sweep of Mount Baldy near Michigan City. He says it’s up to a group of geologists and others to crunch the data and determine a cause for the July 12 collapse that buried then-6-year-old Nathan Woessner, who survived.

Rowe tells The Munster Times that if the experts determine why the dune collapsed, they’ll then have to decide can be done to prevent future collapses. The park also must consider the potential liability from a future collapse.
