A Naperville, Illinois, police officer is receiving viral attention after his department released jarring dashcam footage showing him stopping his patrol auto on a busy highway last month to rescue a toddler running on the side of the highway.

Naperville Police Sergeant Anthony Mannino has seen a lot in his 20-plus years on the job, but nothing quite like what saw while patrolling a busy highway several weeks ago. Sergeant Mannino was awarded the department's Life Saving Award last week.

The boy was teetering in and out of a lane of traffic as cars and trucks rushed by, prompting the officer to shout and run after him, according to the dash-cam video.

"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.

Police said the child had left his mother's home before taking a run on the busy road.

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.

"I have twin boys", he said.
