The good Samaritan who saved a man from being run over by a train is speaking out ... and proving just how humble a true hero really is. Army Specialist Michael Menchaca happened to be coming down the escalator at a Washington, D.C. train station when a wheelchair-bound man fell face-first onto the tracks.

Menchaca is now being considered for the Soldier's Medal - the Army's highest peacetime award - but he maintains that he didn't do anything extraordinary.

"I was just doing the right thing, pretty much like anybody else would have done," he told a local news outlet.
