An Indiana mom who lost her legs shielding her two kids from a tornado visited the White House yesterday on prosthetic limbs. 

She has said she acted on “instinct” when she covered her children with a blanket and threw herself over her them. They were unhurt, but both of Decker’s legs were crushed by falling debris.
Decker was joined by husband Joe, 42, son Dominic, 9, and daughter Reese, 6. They were invited for the special White House tour after Obama made a personal call and sent a handwritten letter to Decker while she was in the hospital.
