    A 5-year-old girl with autism was taken to a hospital after falling from a window Monday in Lynn, Massachusetts.

    The child, named Anitra, took a terrible fall from a second-story window. Her father, Bun Tuy, rushed to the family's home on Houghton Street to figure out what happened.

    "I just got a call from my wife saying, 'Come home,' my kid has fallen through the window," he recalled.

    The child's father believes a snow bank may have cushioned her fall. He's grateful she wasn't badly hurt, and he just wants her back home with her family.
