IL police officer saves child running along busy road

Mannino was presented with the Life Saving Award from the Naperville Police Department last Thursday for his actions. Then as he drew closer, Mannino realized it was actually a toddler wandering dangerously close to traffic. The 2-year-old boy is running south on Route 59 along the right lane, steps away from passing motorists in the center lane.

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". Sgt. Mannino quickly caught up to the boy and pulled him out of harm's way. The child was out for only a matter of minutes before Mannino spotted him.

"We attribute that to Sgt. Mannino's observation while on patrol and quick reaction, placing his squad auto and himself between the child and traffic", said the department on Facebook.
