EL PASO, Texas — Despite the accolades and media attention, El Paso County sheriff's Deputy Juan Muñoz maintains he was just doing his job when he saved a 2-year-old boy from a burning car earlier this month.

Muñoz, who received the Sheriff's Office Lifesaving Medal Award during a promotions ceremony Wednesday at the Sheriff's Office headquarters, 3850 Justice, said he did what any other deputy would do in the same situation.
