Barbara Steiner of Marion has been credited with saving lives this weekend in Kokomo, Indiana. Steiner and her cousin, Janea Stroup of Kokomo were walking near a stream when they saw four men who nearly drowned after their rafts turned over in a raging stream. The two women and a fifth man from another raft used a tree branch to reach the men and pull them close to the creek side where they were finally pulled to safety.
