If you dont have a backup file somewhere I'm affraid you are out of luck.

I agree with gamebits.  Hopefully, you have a backup.  This is also one reason to use transactional tables (InnoDB) and work with autocommit off - so you can rollback changes.  Sorry there's not a better answer.

Would you please tell me how to turn autocommit off, since I just change my table to type InnoDB. Thanks.

There's some good information on transactions that you will want to read here:
