Last updated 8/2/2007 at Noon
Idaho Falls police officer Steven Poulter, son of Roger and Mary Jane Poulter of Bonsall, has been credited with saving the life of a girl who fell into the Snake River.
Poulter responded to a call saying the girl was clinging to rocks in the raging river. He got a rope from his vehicle and jumped into the water. The rope burned his left hand, but he was able to reach the girl and protect her until other emergency workers arrived and tossed ropes to him so he could move the girl 65 feet to the shore.
Officer Poulter has been treated for severe injuries to his hand, including skin grafts....
