A five year old who was thrown off a balcony at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota has no signs of brain damage or swelling and is surprising doctors daily.
According to KARE, Mac Hammond, the pastor at the family’s church, said the boy, who he identified as Landen, had gone through an MRI that lasted five hours and referred to the results as “truly a miracle.”
“Doctors said they found no brain damage — not even any swelling,” Hammond said at the service. “No spinal damage, no nerve damage … doctors are saying it is truly a miracle.”
The pastor said that doctors described the injuries as if he “fell off a bicycle instead of off the third floor of the mall.”
Suspect Emmanuel Aranda, 24, was charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder.
Court documents revealed Aranda told police he first went to the mall Thursday with the intention of killing an adult, but that it did not “work out,” the Press reported.
