A St. Paul boy whose feet were severed by a moving train last summer got a chance to thank first responders Thursday. In August, Marshawn Robinson was playing by some tracks near his home as a moving train went by. He apparently slipped and fell, and both of his feet were severed near his ankles. Thursday, the emergency workers who were the first to provide medical care were honored by Regions Hospital. This was the first time since the accident that Marshawn had a chance to talk to the people who stood by him during the scariest time of his life. Officer Marshall Titus was the first to arrive on the scene.
A 9-year-old boy is in the hospital Thursday night after witnesses say both his feet were severed off when he was playing on a moving train.
