A 5-year-old boy cruelly tossed over the balcony railing on the third floor of the Mall of America reportedly has no brain damage from the April 12 fall.

Mac Hammond, pastor of the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park, Minn,, spoke to his congregation on Easter Sunday delivering the astonishing news about the boy he identified only as “Landen.”

Video of the pastor’s remarks was posted by the Pioneer Press.

The boy underwent an MRI last week to determine the extent of his injuries from the nearly 40-foot fall at the Bloomington mall, according to the video.

“There was zero evidence of brain damage,” Hammond declared. “There wasn’t even any swelling in the brain. No spinal cord injury, no nerve damage, no internal injuries that were life threatening.”

The pastor said Landon had several broken bones.

“One of his attending physicians said this: ‘This is truly a miracle. … It’s like he fell off a bicycle instead of the third floor of a mall,'” Hammond said.

As of Tuesday, Landen’s GoFundMe page was less than $50,000 from its fundraising goal of $1 million. 

A 24-year-old Minneapolis man, Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, has been charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder for the attack, the Pioneer Press reported. Aranda told police he was angry at being rejected by women at the Mall of America and was “looking for someone to kill.”
