6-year old, Nathan Woessner of Sterling IL, was on a family vacation at the Indiana Sand Dunes when he fell into a sand cavity and became trapped.

A prayer vigil was held for little Nathan at the Rock River Christian Center. That's where he and his family attend church regularly. Members of the church say he was saved by the grace of god.

"There's no doubt in our minds that God did a miracle in saving Nathan," said Joan Vickers, the pastor's wife.

Some that attended the vigil like Bethany Bland, say Nathan is an inspiration to the community, and that his experience certainly made an impact on their lives.

"This little boy who most of America hardly even know him but our town, our community or church our whole world is finding out about how important he is," she said.

He's now in critical condition at Comers Children's Hospital in Chicago. His grandfather says he is somewhat responsive, but he can't talk, and only has movement on the right side of his body.
