Minneapolis, Minnesota: Last April, Landen Hoffman, a 5-year old boy, suffered broken bones in his arms and legs after being thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America by Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda. Young Landen did not suffer head trauma, and he is now able to walk “perfectly,” and is attending school with his twin brother. His GoFundMe page has collected over $1 million to help with his medical bills.

Emmanuel Aranda, 24, pleaded guilty to attempted homicide and was sentenced to 19 years in prison. Aranda said that he sometimes has anger issues. He has a past record of harassing patrons and causing property damage at the mall. Aranda’s mother claims her son is mentally ill and does not belong in prison. Aranda is now planning to appeal his sentence.



The 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota is now walking “perfectly,” and is giving credit to angels who caught him and to the love of Jesus.

In an update on their GoFundMe page Friday, friends of the family of Landen Hoffman noted that the young boy’s condition continues to improve, that they are working toward getting him off of some medications, that he is “walking perfectly” and that the open wound on his belly was at last scabbing over and new skin was growing.

Young Landen Hoffman was thrown 40 feet off a railing by 24-year-old Emmanuel Aranda on April 12.

He was in critical condition following the incident, having suffered from broken arms and legs. Remarkably, however, an MRI showed that he had no damage to the brain despite doctors believing that he had endured head trauma.

Aranda, who told investigators he decided to harm the boy after he went to he mall searching for someone to kill, pleaded guilty to attempted murder in June and was subsequently sentenced to 19 years in prison.

In addition to recovering physically, the 5-year-old boy is also in good spirits.

Obviously a hate crime. Where was this little boy’s white privilege?
