Family of Child Thrown From Mall of America Balcony Files Lawsuit

The family of the boy who was thrown from the third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in 2019 have filed a lawsuit against the Bloomington facility.

Minneapolis attorney Mark J. Briol announced on Wednesday he has filed a legal complaint against the megamall on behalf of the family of the Woodbury boy, who has been identified only as Landen.

Landen was just 5 years old when he was thrown over the side of the third-floor balcony railings by 24-year-old Emanuel Aranda, who has since been imprisoned for attempted murder.

The family is seeking damages from the mall, saying they have incurred $1.7 million in medical expenses as a result of the incident, adding that "while the child has made remarkable progress, he will face ongoing medical and health challenges, as will his mother, who witnessed the criminal assault."
