A 5-year-old boy thrown from the 3rd floor of the Mall of America continues to improve and is now walking evenly with both legs. Landen Hoffman was shopping with his mother and friends last April when he was thrown over the rail of a balcony by 24-year-old attacker Emmanuel Aranda. Due to the impact, Landen suffered massive head trauma and fractured bones in his arm and legs. According to a post on the family’s GoFundMe page, Landen’s condition has improved from continuous physical therapy. Also, he has returned to school with his brother and sister. Landen’s mother wrote that he is a strong and happy boy with a kind heart. “Landen loves life and Jesus!”
He tells people when they get hurt, ‘don’t worry, I fell off a cliff, but Angels caught me, so I’m ok and you will be too!’” He has positive memories from his time in the hospital. The family is overjoyed by the endless prayers he has received from people all over the world. They said, “Landen loves all the cards he keeps getting in the mail. His whole family feels the love and are so grateful for the prayers.” Landen’s road to recovery isn’t over, but his family is thankful for the support and encouragement as they overcome the obstacles ahead. Aranda was sentenced to 19 years in prison. Landen’s family did not attend the hearing but said they forgive him and will continue to pray for him.
