An Illinois police sergeant is being hailed a hero after rescuing a young child who "escaped his mother's watchful eye".

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.

"The kid just got out of the house", Mannino later told CBS Chicago station WBBM-TV.

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".

The department posted dash cam video of the incident to Facebook and noted Mannino was presented Thursday with a live-saving service award.
