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.
