IL officer receives award for rescuing boy running on busy highway

In dashcam footage of the rescue, Mannino is seen running after the child before carrying it back to his cruiser. Dash cam from Sergeant Anthony Mannino's patrol vehicle shows him plucking a toddler from harm's way in Naperville, Illinois last month.

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

Mannino, who was on patrol, stopped his police vehicle to block a lane of traffic, ran after the child and scooped him up, telling him "you're OK".

"You're OK. You're OK", said Mannino, when he caught up to the boy.
