Sgt. Anthony Mannino found the boy running down the side of the busy street and jumped into action.
Police Department officer was honored for rescuing a toddler running alongside a freeway last month. At one point in the video, a large truck passes just a few feet from the boy, who appears to veer toward the center lane of traffic.
Mannino alerted dispatch that he caught the boy and would begin the search for his parents, according to the Naperville Sun.

Amazon told Gizmodo it completed its own audit of the Foxconn manufacturing plant in March and found "two issues of concern". Meanwhile, Foxconn "works hard to comply with all relevant laws and regulations", according to the same Reuters report.
"You're OK, you're OK", Mannino tells the boy once he finally catches up. The child was out for only a matter of minutes before Mannino spotted him.
Naperville Police said the little boy "escaped his mother's watchful eye" and got out of his house.
No one was hurt, which the police department attributes to Mannino's "observation while on patrol and quick reaction, placing his squad vehicle and himself between the child and traffic". Sgt. Mannino was presented the police department's Life Saving Award on June 7. No charges were filed against the mother, and police ruled the incident was an accident.
