Naperville officer rescues young boy running on Route 59

Last month, Mannino's dash cam captured a shocking sight showing a toddler running all by himself in the right lane of a busy highway.

The Naperville Police Department said Monday that Sgt. Anthony Mannino was recently given the department's Life Saving Award for bringing the child to safety last month on the side of Route 59 outside of Chicago. One large truck passes just feet away from the child, who the officer describes to dispatchers as about 1-year-old.

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

Once Mannino stops his auto, he runs after the boy, shouting "come here".

Nadal unsure of Wimbledon appearance after French Open win
Only Nadal, Pete Sampras and Ken Rosewall have managed the feat of winning Grand Slam titles in their teens, 20s and 30s. She was the first reigning women's champion to lose her opening match at the French Open since 2004.

"You're OK, you're OK", Mannino tells the boy once he finally catches up.

The child "escaped his mother's watchful eye" and left his home, according to the Naperville Police Department's Facebook page. Sergeant Mannino received a lifesaver award from his department. The child was out for only a matter of minutes before Mannino spotted him. No charges were filed against the mother, and police ruled the incident was an accident.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
