Police officer rescues toddler running along highway

A Naperville police officer was caught on camera rescuing a toddler wandering on a busy road.

According to a Naperville police spokesman, the boy ran out of his mother's home when she wasn't looking. The Naperville Police Department posted dashcam video of last month's rescue by Sgt. Anthony Mannino on its Facebook page Monday.

"The kid just got out of the house", Mannino later told CBS Chicago station WBBM-TV. Dash cam from Sergeant Anthony Mannino's patrol vehicle shows him plucking a toddler from harm's way in Naperville, Illinois last month.

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". Police say he lived nearby and he was quickly reunited with his mother. Sergeant Mannino received a lifesaver award from his department. "I initially thought it was a dog at large about to run into the street", Mannino said.

Once Mannino stops his vehicle, he runs after the boy, shouting "come here".
