A 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a third-floor balcony at Mall of America has shown no signs of brain damage or swelling, according to the pastor at the family's church.

The family's pastor delivered the message during Easter service and said the good news followed a five-hour MRI.

He said doctors also found the boy had no spinal cord injuries, no nerve damage and no life-threatening injuries.

A GoFundMe account that was set up for the boy's medical expenses has raised nearly $1 million.

The suspect in the case, Emmanuel Aranda, is charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder. He remains in jail on a $2 million bond.
