Cleveland 9th Grader recognized for saving friend’s life

CLEVELAND, Minn. (KEYC) - A 9th-grade student at Cleveland Public Schools is recognized for her life-saving efforts outside of the classroom.

According to the school district, Sami Steiner was in the right place at the right time when a family friend frantically came to her room recently. She found out her friend had been stung by a bee and that she was deathly allergic to bee stings. Officials say they both then walked to the kitchen where Steiner administered an EpiPen and kept the victim calm. She also got her some Benadryl to help with the allergic reaction.

The Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office recently presented Steiner with a pin to recognize her heroic efforts.
