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

WATCH Jarring dashcam footage shows hero cop running to save toddler on side of very busy highway

A Naperville, Illinois, police officer is receiving viral attention after his department released jarring dashcam footage showing him stopping his patrol auto on a busy highway last month to rescue a toddler running on the side of the highway. The Naperville, Illinois Police Department awarded Mannino for his life-saving actions.

Police also released this footage of Sergent Anthony Mannino stopping his patrol auto and running after the toddler on Route 59, before picking him up to comfort him.




When Mannino first saw the figure on the busy highway, he says he thought it was some kind of animal, according to WGN.

The video taken from Sgt. Anthony Mannino's dashcam shows the officer stopping near Route 59 and Gowdey Road, just north of Aurora Road. Mannino parked his cruiser to block traffic, then ran to the little boy who was eventually reunited with his mother. He then chased the boy down, even as the 1-year-old continued running. Sgt. Mannino quickly caught up to the boy and pulled him out of harm's way. No one was hurt in the incident.
