A 9-year-old boy was injured in a train accident in St. Paul Thursday night.
Police have identified the child as Marshawn Farr-Robinson. Officials say his feet were severed in the accident.
Police say people passing by found Marshawn near the intersection of Ivy and Farrington in the North End. Emergency personnel used tourniquets to treat the child at the scene.
St. Paul police spokesman Howie Padilla said it's not yet known whether the train sounded its horn or if the engineer saw the boy.
"Preliminary information we have at this point is that he was playing near some train tracks. Actually playing near the moving train. And came into some kind of contact with the train and suffered those injuries to his legs," Padilla said.
Police have not yet identified the train company. The tracks are owned by Burlington Northern.
