Lazar Ognjenovic, the three year old boy who fell in Lake Michigan's cold waters, in April has fully recovered, according to officials who addressed a press conference at Children's Memorial Hospital.
"He is absolutely normal," said Dr. Leon Epstein, chief of neurology at Children's Memorial Hospital. "He walks and talks and acts absolutely like a 3-year-old boy."
