Representative Susan Wild took to the House floor to honor Benjamin Steidinger of Germansville, Pennsylvania. Nearly one year ago, Benjamin Steidinger put his life at risk to rescue two women, a baby, and a dog from a burning building in Heidelberg Township.
“I rise today as we approach the one-year anniversary of the heroism of Benjamin Steidinger of Germansville, Pennsylvania. When Benjamin saw smoke coming from a house across his street, he didn’t just call 911. He climbed up a ladder to the second story, knocked out a window, and crawled across the floor – where he rescued two women, a baby, and a dog from the smoke and flames. Benjamin thought he might not make it out of that house alive, but he put his life at risk in sacrifice for others. He is among the best of us. Today, I commend Benjamin for representing and living out the values of our community: grit, determination, and courage in the face of immense challenge. Benjamin, on behalf of Pennsylvania’s 7th district– thank you for your courage.”
