IL officer receives award for rescuing boy running on busy highway

Mannino, who was on patrol, stopped his police auto to block a lane of traffic, ran after the child and scooped him up, telling him "you're OK".

At one point, a large truck can be seen passing within a few feet of the approximately one-year-old child at a high rate of speed. It was a heart-stopping moment when Sergeant Anthony Mannino, 24, spotted the young boy wandering onto Route 59, just inches away from speeding traffic. Mannino then alerts dispatch that he has him and would begin searching for his parents.

Officers later learned that the child "escaped his mother's watchful eye" and left his home, according to police.

No charges were filed against the mother, and police ruled the incident was an accident.
