The 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a Mall of America third-floor balcony and survived is “walking perfectly” and could be off his medication soon.
The family of Landen Hoffman gave an update about the boy on a GoFundMe page, saying the open wound on his belly had “finally scabbed over and new skin is growing.”
“Mom has been doing everything she can to speed up the healing of his wound and working toward getting off some of his medications,” the post said.
Hoffman was hospitalized with two broken arms, a broken leg and fractures to his face and skull when Emmanuel Aranda, 24, tossed him about 40 feet during a random attack at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. on April 12.
He was forced to undergo 15 separate medical procedures and surgeries due to the injuries and “severe complications.” He returned home months later.
Now, Hoffman said to be enjoying life and is going to kindergarten with his twin brother and sister.
