This is an amazing story. It sort of tugs at the heart strings you know? Alex Swigart, a 12-year-old boy with autism, smelled smoke in his Arizona home in the middle of the night. He went into his parents room and awoken his dad. Something along the lines of "Dad, I think I smell smoke." And the father,by what is hopefully some freak occurrence, got everyone out safely except the 12 year-old autistic boy. He told the local news:
"I realized at the time he wasn't there. By the time I got back up on the porch, fire engulfed the living room. I ran around the side of the house. I tried to go inside. I had four Border Patrol men grab me and drag me back to the road. They wouldn't let me go back inside. I yelled inside the window and I heard him say, "Daddy I can't breathe!"
