A boy of four died when carjackers drove off with his foot stuck in a seatbelt.
Taegrin Morris was dragged to his death behind the VW Golf, which was stolen from his mother Chantel at gunpoint.

“Then they ripped him from my hands.”
The car was found abandoned with Taegrin body’s still attached to the belt.
South African police have offered a reward for help in catching the hijackers, who struck in Johannesburg on Saturday night.
One suspect handed himself in yesterday.
