Via CBS Minnesota:
A witness at the Bloomington mall told WCCO that a woman was screaming that someone threw her child from the third-floor balcony. This was near the southeast corner of the mall.
“She was screaming ‘Everyone pray, everyone pray. Oh my God, my baby, someone threw him over the edge,’” Brian Johnson said.
Bloomington Police reported that the victim was 5 years old.
Emergency crews could be seen performing CPR on the child in the southeast corner of the mall. A large amount of blood was on the floor.
Allina Health officials said an ambulance took the child to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis.
A source at the scene tells WCCO that the person who threw, or possibly pushed, the child fled the mall and was apprehended near the light rail station. The source said the victim was a young boy.
