    SELLERSBURG, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana woman who lost parts of both legs while protecting her two children from a tornado is home.
    Stephanie Decker of Henryville was released from a southern Indiana rehabilitation hospital on Monday.
    The 36-year-old woman tells The Courier-Journal said she was excited to go home and not remain stuck in a bed.
    Storm debris crushed Decker’s legs as she covered her children with her body during the March 2 storm. Doctors amputated one leg above the knee and the other above the ankle. Her family’s home in Henryville was destroyed. The Deckers will now live in a home in Sellersburg that they had been renting out.
    Volunteers are making it accessible for Decker by installing a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
