Indiana mother loses part of both legs to save children

Henryville, Ind. - Another story of survival and a mother's love during the tornado outbreak in Indiana.

With a tornado fast approaching, Stephanie Decker knew the only chance she and the kids had of surviving was to wrap them in a blanket and lay on top of them.

When the storm cleared their home was gone - with Stephanie and the kids buried in the rubble.

A neighbor, Sheriff's Deputy Brian Lovins, came running with friends to find Stephanie bleeding heavily. Realizing her leg was severed, Brian grabbed a belt to use as a tourniquet.

It saved her life.

Both the kids survived without injury. For the rest of their lives they will know their mother's love, and the sacrifice she was willing to make for them.
