The girl’s mother had just parked the family SUV at their Newburgh City home when violent wind gusts toppled a tree and trapped the girl inside, FOX5 NY reported. Newburgh is about 60 miles north of New York City.

"The mother was on the porch, crying, 'My daughter, my daughter,'" Ramon Rodriguez, a witness, told NBC News 4 New York. "It kind of gave me a chill when I first saw it."
