The nine-year-old boy, who was seriously injured in a serious accident on a railway line in the Ruhr area, is "currently no longer in acute danger" after an operation. A police spokesman said on Friday the German Press Agency in Recklinghausen. A freight train hit two boys aged ten and nine on Thursday evening. The ten-year-old was killed and the nine-year-old seriously injured. There is no evidence of other injuries, said the police spokesman.
It should now be clarified how the children got onto the railway premises. It is hoped that more information will be forthcoming in the course of the day. In this context, the police appealed to witnesses to come forward. Of particular interest is whether there might have been more children on the tracks before the accident. "This is also an investigation subject," said the spokesman.
