Officer receives award for rescuing toddler seen running along busy highway

Officer receives award for rescuing toddler seen running along busy highway

According to the Naperville Police Department, which posted the footage to its Facebook page Monday afternoon, the boy "escaped his mother's watchful eye". "Mom was in the house with the kid, and in a fleeting second, child ran out of the house". Sergeant Mannino was awarded the department's Life Saving Award last week.

Naperville, Ill. - Naperville Police Sergeant Anthony Mannino has seen a lot in his 20-plus years on the job, but nothing quite like what saw while patrolling a busy highway several weeks ago.

The sergeant pulled over and parked his squad vehicle to block traffic in the lane.

When Mannino catches the boy, the dash cam footage shows him telling him "You're OK, you're OK", then asking the boy his name. Police say he lived nearby and he was quickly reunited with his mother. "I initially thought it was a dog at large about to run into the street", Mannino said.

The police department says Mannino last week received its lifesaving award for his efforts.
