Police ID Boy Who Lost Feet in St. Paul Train Accident | News
Marshawn Kenneth Farr-Robinson has been identified as the 9-year-old boy whose legs were severed when he was hit by a train Thursday night, according to St. Paul Police.
The boy, who police say has "life-changing injuries," was hit by the train just before 6 p.m. near Ivy Avenue West and Farrington Street. He was taken to Regions Hospital with severe injuries to his legs. No foul play is suspected.
A witness, who lives in the area, said he and another family member watched the boy as he climbed on some of the trains and then actually fell off one of the train cars below the train.
The witness said he picked up the boy's severed feet and gave them to police, hoping that they could be reattached.
Police said the boy was by himself when he was hit by the train.
Burlington Northern owns the track, and a Canadian Pacific train hit the boy.
At this point, additional details have not been released.
