Nearly five months after being thrown off a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota, 5-year-old Landen Hoffman is finally home.

The wonderful news was shared by the youngster’s family on a GoFundMe page dedicated to raising funds to help aid his recovery. After Hoffman was thrown some 40 feet from a balcony back in April, medics were convinced that he would suffer from life-long brain damage as a result.

Incredibly, however, the child has made a full and complete recovery, after the parents pleaded for prayer in the days and weeks following the incident — truly a work of God! “We are pleased to share that our son completed his inpatient rehabilitation and is now home,” the Hoffman’s said in a statement posted to GoFundMe. “We are so thankful, and we rejoice in the Lord’s blessings to our family.”

“We continue to ask that His healing powers guide us and our son’s care team as we enter the next phase of recovery, which includes continued outpatient rehabilitation for multiple injuries and adjusting to life back at home and school,” they added.

The parents thanked all of those who had poured out prayers for Landen, who sustained severe head trauma and several broken bones when he was attacked by a 24-year-old man. The suspect subsequently pleaded guilty to attempted premeditated first-degree murder and was sentenced to 19 years in prison, according to CBS News.
