Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- A 6-year-old Illinois boy who survived being buried under a sand dune in Indiana has been released from rehabilitative care at a children's hospital in Chicago.

La Rabida Children's Hospital says Nathan Woessner of Sterling was discharged Friday morning. He went to the facility after he was discharged from the hospital Tuesday.

Doctors at La Rabida say he 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. Doctors say he is doing well and can bathe himself, brush his own teeth and walk by himself.

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.
