‘A monster did this, Landen is fighting to stay with us’: Boy, five, was critically injured after stranger threw him off a 3rd-floor balcony at Mall of America

Wellwishers have donated more than $300,000 to the family of a five-year-old boy who suffered life-threatening injuries when he was thrown off a third-floor balcony in the Mall of America by a stranger.

The boy, Landen Hoffmann of Woodbury, Minnesota, was tossed from the balcony on Friday and police have arrested the man they believe is responsible.

Landen’s cousin, April Hoffmann, posted a tribute to the boy on her Instagram page on Saturday.
