IL police officer saves child running along busy road

The last comment heard in the dashcam footage is Mannino asking the child his name.

"The kid just got out of the house", Mannino later told CBS Chicago station WBBM-TV.

According to a Naperville police spokesman, the boy ran out of his mother's home when she wasn't looking.

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

Last month, Sgt. Andrew Mannino's dash cam captured the shocking sight of the toddler running all by himself in the right lane of the highway. Luckily, no one was hurt, and we attribute that to Sgt. Mannino's observation while on patrol and quick reaction, placing his squad auto and himself between the child and traffic.

"I initially thought it was a dog at large about to run into the street", Mannino said.

Mannino received the Life-Saving Award on June 7 in recognition of his actions. It was a heart-stopping moment when Sergeant Anthony Mannino, 24, spotted the young boy wandering onto Route 59, just inches away from speeding traffic.
