The 5-year-old boy who faced life-threatening injuries in April after being thrown off a Mall of America balcony is now back in school and “walking perfectly,” according to an update from a family friend.
He’s also crediting Jesus for his recovery.
The boy, known only by his first name, Landen, was nearly killed in April when a stranger picked him up and tossed him 40 feet from the third-floor balcony to the first floor below at the Minnesota mall. The stranger said he had gone to the mall “looking for someone to kill.”
Family friend Noah Hanneman posted an update Nov. 22 on the family’s GoFundMe page, saying Landen is doing much better after returning home from the hospital with a “limp and uneven legs” from a broken femur. Landen also came home with “an open wound on his belly we were taking care of every night.”
“He is now walking PERFECTLY with even legs AMEN,” the update said. “The wound has finally scabbed over and new skin is growing, and we are still optimistic he will be off some of his medications soon.
