An officer is seen rescuing a toddler running along a busy road in a Chicago suburb in a heart-stopping video.

Dash cam from Sergeant Anthony Mannino's patrol vehicle shows him plucking a toddler from harm's way in Naperville, Illinois last month.

The dashcam footage shows Sgt. Anthony Mannino stop his patrol auto on the right side of a busy highway, just behind where the young boy is running.

As a result of his role in the rescue, Mannino received the Naperville Police Department's Life Saving Award last week, according to the post.

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

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

Mannino told WBBM-TV that he at first thought he spotted a stray dog, but then his parental instincts took over.

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, and there's not a day that goes by where something bad happens, you always think of your own kids", Mannino said.
