(NEW YORK POST) — A GoFundMe campaign had raised $320,000 by early Sunday for the 5-year-old boy who suffered life-threatening injuries when a deranged stranger flung him off a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn.
Just 13 hours after it was posted, the tragic fundraiser page for Landen Hoffmann of Woodbury Minn. had logged donations from more than 9,000 well-wishers.
The average donation to the page, which was created by family friends, was just over $30, but the good wishes were priceless.
“We are heartsick over what happened to Landen, your precious little boy,” one couple posted after 1 a.m.
“Every prayer for your family and your sweet little boy!” another couple posted a minute earlier.
The GoFundMe page said that Landen remains in stable condition, “contrary to the rumors and attention seekers out there stating that he has passed.”
Landen was grabbed and thrown from the balcony onto the mall’s tile flooring on Friday morning; Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, of Minneapolis, has been charged with attempted homicide.
“A monster of a man threw him from a 3rd floor balcony at the mall,” the boy’s cousin, April, posted on Instagram, the Daily Mail reported.
“He is fighting to stay with us every second. Landen we love you so much buddy.”
