  • Watch this officer rescue child running alongside freeway traffic

Sgt. Anthony Mannino is being hailed as a hero after he rescued a 1-year-old from a busy highway near Aurora, Illinois.

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 said Mannino was honored with the department's Life Saving Award on June 7.

During the chase, a large truck could be seen passing within a few feet of the child at a high rate of speed.

When Mannino catches the boy, the dash cam footage shows him telling him "You're OK, you're OK", then asking the boy his name.

Sergeant Mannino with the Naperville police department saw the boy and sprung into action.

"You're OK. You're OK", said Mannino, when he caught up to the boy.

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