A teenage girl has had her feet severed after an incident at the McIver Train Station, in Perth's CBD, overnight.
Police spokesman Sam Dinnison said while police were investigating, it was understood that the 16-year-old girl was trying to cross the tracks when she was run over below the knees.
Police were called to the station about 11pm on Sunday.
"The girl, who was with a friend at the time, appears to have tried to cross the train lines at the Moore Street intersection and was struck by a train," Mr Dinnison said,
"The girl received serious leg injuries below her knees and was taken to Royal Perth Hospital by ambulance."
Channel Nine's Elle Mitaros, who was at RPH, told Radio 6PR that it had been confirmed to her that the girl had undergone a double amputation since the incident.
A Public Transport Authority spokeswoman said the authority would review CCTV footage from the train station.
A spokeswoman for Royal Perth Hospital said the girl was in a critical but stable condition.
