Barrington boy hit by train leaves hospital


An 11-year-old boy who lost his foot when he was struck by a commuter train in Barrington has been released from a hospital about three weeks after the accident.

Dominic Szymanski was hit by a Metra train while crossing the tracks in downtown Barrington on March 15.

Police officers and a witness administered first aid until paramedics arrived.

The News-Sun reports that the fifth-grader was able to return home earlier this week.

Barrington 220 School District spokesman Jeff Arnett says his recovery is going well and that the boy will likely get at-home tutoring until he is well enough to return to classes.
