ST. PAUL (AP) — 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. KARE-TV (http://kare11.tv/1cUbIFc) reports 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.
