 Boy Who Fell in Lake Michigan Has Recovered Completely

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."

The Chicago Fire Department's Air Sea Rescue team rescued Lazar, whose parents are Serbian. It is estimated the boy spent 15 minutes in the frigid water.

A hospital spokeswoman said Lazar had showed no signs of being afraid of water.
