IL officer receives award for rescuing boy running on busy highway

IL officer receives award for rescuing boy running on busy highway

The dashcam footage shows Sgt. Anthony Mannino stop his patrol vehicle on the right side of a busy highway, just behind where the young boy is running.

Mannino stopped his squad vehicle 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". Sergeant Mannino was awarded the department's Life Saving Award last week.

Mannino then got out on foot and chased after the boy, managing to quickly get him to safety as cars and tractor-trailers sped by. The child was out for only a matter of minutes before Mannino spotted him. Mannino then tells dispatchers he would begin looking for the boy's parents. No one was hurt in the incident.




According to the Naperville Police Department's Facebook page, the child "escaped his mother's watchful eye" and left his home. He responded quickly, parking his squad vehicle to block traffic and pulling the little boy to safety.

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

No charges were filed.
