Naperville officer rescues young boy running on Route 59

No charges were filed as the police ruled the incident an accident

Sergeant Anthony Mannino was driving along Route 59 last month when he saw the little boy.

Dash cam from Sergeant Anthony Mannino's patrol vehicle shows him plucking a toddler from harm's way in Naperville, Illinois last month.

But as he drew closer, he realized it was a 1-year-old boy running along the highway's right lane, just steps away from passing cars. However, the boy keeps running, forcing Mannino into a full sprint to catch up.

Mannino tells CBS Chicago he first thought the boy was a stray dog. He responded quickly, parking his squad auto to block traffic and pulling the little boy to safety. Sgt. Mannino was presented the police department's Life Saving Award on June 7.

According to the Naperville Police Department, which posted the footage to its Facebook page Monday afternoon, the boy "escaped his mother's watchful eye".

"I have twin boys, and there's not a day that goes by where something bad happens, you always think of your own kids", Mannino said.

Mannino says the mother showed up moments later and "obviously was very emotional".
