Police officer lauded for saving toddler on Illinois highway (video)

The video taken from Sgt. Anthony Mannino's dashcam shows the officer stopping near Route 59 and Gowdey Road, just north of Aurora Road.

Police Department officer was honored for rescuing a toddler running alongside a freeway last month. Sergeant Mannino was awarded the department's Life Saving Award last week. He then chased the boy down, even as the 1-year-old continued running.

The sergeant pulled over and parked his squad vehicle to block traffic in the lane. The 1-year-old was running alongside traffic, including large trucks whizzing by at risky speeds.

"Come here!" Mannino shouts as he runs and catches up to the little boy. The child was out for only a matter of minutes before Mannino spotted him.

According to a Naperville police spokesman, the boy ran out of his mother's home when she wasn't looking. Luckily, no one was hurt, and we attribute that to Sgt. Mannino's observation while on patrol and quick reaction, placing his squad vehicle and himself between the child and traffic. Police ruled the incident an accident.
