ST. PAUL — The young boy who lost both feet in a train accident last week in St. Paul is hospitalized in fair condition.

Nine-year-old Marshawn Kenneth Farr-Robinson was playing along the tracks near his home when his feet were severed under the wheels of a freight train. Witnesses say Marshawn, despite his traumatic injuries, managed to crawl from the tracks toward the street where neighbors found him.

Marshawn is hospitalized at Gillette Children’s Specialty Health Care.
