IL officer receives award for rescuing boy running on busy highway

IL officer receives award for rescuing boy running on busy highway

Police posted dashcam footage of the May 10 incident on its Facebook page Monday.

Last month - Mannino's dash cam captured a shocking sight - a toddler running all by himself in the right lane of a busy highway. At one point in the video, a large truck passes just a few feet from the boy, who appears to veer toward the center lane of traffic.

The sergeant pulled over and parked his squad vehicle to block traffic in the lane.

The video shows Mannino pull his cruiser up behind the boy and get out, chasing him down and yelling, "Hey, hey, hey, come here", then stopping him up and telling him "You're OK, you're OK".

Earlier today, Todd Howard surprised gamers by making an appearance at Microsoft's E3 presentation. There's also a glimpse at one of the most iconic video game vehicles of all time: the Warthog.

"You're OK", Mannino tells the youngster, before escorting him away and asking his name.

The department's post says the child "escaped his mother's watchful eye" and wandered along Route 59 as traffic whizzed by.

The officer then picked the child up, carrying him out of harm's way.

Mannino was presented with the Life Saving Award from the Naperville Police Department last Thursday for his actions.
