Officer rescues toddler running along busy road in heart-stopping video

Officer rescues toddler running along busy road in heart-stopping video

Last month, Mannino's dash cam captured a shocking sight showing a toddler running all by himself in the right lane of a busy highway.

Mannino stopped his squad auto in the right lane, keeping the lane clear of traffic, and then ran up to the child while shouting at him to stop and "come here". He then chased the boy down, even as the 1-year-old continued running. The 1-year-old was running alongside traffic, including large trucks whizzing by at risky speeds.

After about 30 strides, Mannino catches the child, according to the dashcam footage.

"You're OK, you're OK", Mannino tells the boy once he finally catches up. The last comment heard in the video is Mannino asking the boy his name.

An Illinois police sergeant is being hailed a hero after rescuing a young child who "escaped his mother's watchful eye".

As a result of his quick-thinking response, Naperville PD awarded the sergeant with the department's Life Saving Award on June 7, the Facebook post said.

The officer then picked the child up, carrying him out of harm's way.
