DES MOINES, Iowa – Two North Iowa heroes were honored Wednesday at the state capitol.
Representative Shannon Latham lauded Steve Fettkether and Jason Hahn on the House Floor for saving a woman from a near-fatal car accident on April 5. The two men pulled Donna Rench out of her flaming truck after it crashed on County Road B20 just west of Mallard (Eisenhower) Avenue.
“The split-second decisions made by these two men literally saved a woman’s life,” says Representative Latham said. “Jason was on the way to pick up his mom from the Minneapolis airport, but he didn’t use that as an excuse not to pull over and help. When Steve recognized Jason’s vehicle, he stopped to lend a hand. Today, I was appreciative of the opportunity to honor these men for their courage on the House Floor.”
