Child thrown from MN mall balcony alive: Police

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A 5-year-old child suffered "significant injuries" on Friday after being thrown or pushed by an apparent stranger from the third floor of Minnesota's Mall of America, and a man who fled the scene was arrested, police said.

The child was rushed to a hospital after officers and passersby provided aid at the scene, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said.

Police said the suspect, a 24-year-old man, was arrested inside the mall, one of the state's leading tourist attractions.

"At this time we do not believe there is a relationship between the suspect and the child or the family of the child, and we are actively investigating as to why this incident occurred," Potts said at a briefing just outside the mall.

Neither the suspect nor the child was immediately identified, and the child's condition was not immediately known.

Police received an initial report at 10:17 a.m.

Saying that a child had fallen from the third level of the mall, but witnesses reported that the child was pushed or thrown by a man, Potts said.

"We don't believe that there is a threat to the public at this point as the suspect has been located," he said, adding that the incident appeared to be isolated.

The Mall of America, home to 330 stores, is located in the city of Bloomington, just south of Minneapolis.

According to the mall's website, it is visited by 40 million people from around the world each year.
