Off-duty deputy saves choking child

Murnan had forgotten all about the incident when contacted by his supervisor that The Star was trying to locate him.

“He is a fine man and was just promoted to sergeant,” said Sheriff Mike Harrison.

When the email was read to Murnan to explain tracking him down, he said he was just doing what his many years in law enforcement – with Mexico Beach and Gulf County - had taught him.

To have someone recognize it, though, was not so bad.

“That is pretty cool,” Murnan said of Williams’ email.

Due to legal restrictions, information about the boy’s condition was not known, though there were no reports of deaths or serious injuries that day in those circumstances.

Murnan said the last he saw the boy called Angel he was doing fine and be attended to by EMS personnel. He was not even sure the boy was transported from the park by ambulance.
