JOHANNESBURG - A four-year-old boy has been killed after being dragged by his parent's hijacked vehicle in Reiger Park, Boksburg.

The police's Khensani Mogoai says a couple was travelling with their two children last night when they were approached by three armed men.

She says the family was forced out of the car but the child was not fast enough after getting trapped by the safety belt.

Mogoai says police are now searching for the three suspects and urged the public to come forward with any information.
