ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The mother of a St. Paul boy whose feet were severed by a freight train this week says the 9-year-old has stabilized and is "doing well."

Kimberly Farr sais Saturday her son was "doing wonderfully for the situation" and that God has been good.

Marshawn Kenneth Farr-Robinson lost both of his feet Thursday. Witnesses say he appeared to be trying to jump onto the ladder of a slow-moving train when he fell.

A spokeswoman at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul says Marshawn was in fair condition Saturday.

The tracks are owned by BNSF Railway Co. Railroad spokeswoman Amy McBeth says there are no-trespassing signs in the area. BNSF is investigating the accident.
