Lawton man awarded Oklahoma Star of Valor

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man has been awarded the Oklahoma Star of Valor for saving the life of a pregnant woman who was stabbed.

Sergeant Kevin Painter was in Oklahoma City doing some shopping when he noticed a woman being attacked by a man along Interstate 35. Painter put himself between the victim and her attacker and then stayed to treat the woman as the man jumped off a bridge. The woman has since delivered her baby and both are doing fine.

The Oklahoma Star of Valor is awarded to someone who risks life or limb in protection of another.
