Officer Honored for Rescuing Toddler From Illinois Highway

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

Mannino was presented his department's lifesaving award on Thursday, the department said.

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.

"I was praying to God he wouldn't make a left turn to enter that lane of traffic", Mannino said. One large truck passes just feet away from the child, who the officer describes to dispatchers as about 1-year-old.

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".

"Come here!" Mannino shouts as he runs and catches up to the little boy. No one was hurt in the incident.

Sergeant Mannino with the Naperville police department saw the boy and sprung into action.

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

The boy's mother arrived moments after Mannino saved him, WGN reports.
