Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
14-year-old boy has had his foot amputated after it was run over by a train in Newcastle.
Shortly before 3pm yesterday the boy from the Newcastle suburb of Cooks Hill attempted to cross the railway tracks near the Maitland Road Bridge at Islington.
A police spokesman said the boy was attempting to cross between two moving carriages of a coal train when he fell under the wheels.
He was treated at the scene and taken to John Hunter Hospital where his right foot was amputated, the spokesman said.
The teenager remains in a stable condition.
Police have interviewed the train driver and two witnesses.
