PORTER, Ind. (21Alive) – Work is scheduled to begin at the Indiana Dunes National Park to try to determine what caused a section of the dune to collapse.

Last month, the collapse buried a 6-year-old boy under 11 ft. of sand for more than three hours.

The National Park Service and the Environmental Protection Agency are bringing in ground-sensing equipment to begin searching for possible anomalies in the 43-acre sand dune called Mount Baldy.

Work is scheduled to begin on Monday.
