A 5-year-old boy thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America in Minnesota two weeks ago is alert and conscious and no longer in critical condition, his family said Friday.
“All praise, glory and honor to Jesus! He saved our son’s life and is healing him in the most miraculous ways,” the family of the boy, identified only as Landon, said in a statement released by their attorney, Stephen Tillitt. The statement says “our son is now alert and conscious and is no longer in critical condition.”
Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly throwing Landon over the railing April 12. He was arrested a short time later, according to a criminal complaint.
Aranda admitted to throwing the boy from the third floor and was looking to kill someone, according to the criminal complaint. He had planned on killing an adult, but chose the boy instead, the document said.
Landon’s family said they were “astounded” that over 28,000 donors from around the world contributed to his GoFundMe page.
“Your love and generosity overwhelms and means so much to us! We have no idea where we would be without you — God and your prayers have sustained us,” the family said.
They said they hoped Landon would be able to go home from the hospital by June.
“The road to recovery remains long, but with God and you, we are assured to make it through,” the family said.
