Watch this officer rescue child running alongside freeway traffic

The sergeant pulled over and parked his squad auto to block traffic in the lane.

Police also released this footage of Sergent Anthony Mannino stopping his patrol vehicle and running after the toddler on Route 59, before picking him up to comfort him.

At one point, a large truck can be seen passing within a few feet of the child at a high rate of speed. The boy runs away from the sergeant, prompting the officer to sprint after the boy south along Route 59.

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. Mannino then tells dispatchers he would begin looking for the boy's parents.

As a thanks for his heroism, Sgt. Mannino received a life saving service award from the department. The child was out for only a matter of minutes before Mannino spotted him.

The young boy "escaped his mother's watchful eye" and left his house.

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