Durban - The man who was hijacked and kidnapped outside his Mount Moriah home, near Phoenix, was thrown out of a moving car, his sister said yon Wednesday.
Dumisani Mdlalose, 30, was accosted by three armed men after his return from work at about 8pm on Monday.
The suspects hijacked his BMW 318i and forced him into the car, driving away with him.
Mdlalose’s wife, Thembeka, who was seated in the front passenger seat, managed to escape the men and ran for help.
Mdlalose was found by family and friends at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Phoenix on Tuesday, after being spotted by an ambulance in Avoca.
His sister, Mbali, 27, said she was disheartened to see her brother struggle in a hospital bed.
“The hijackers threw him out of a moving car and his bruises look really bad. He struggles to talk to us, but he does say a few words and then gets tired,” she said
Mbali said the family were praying for Mdlalose’s recovery and were hoping the hijackers would be found quickly.
“We’re just really happy that he is alive. We are still struggling to explain to his son, Bhampo, what has happened to his father,” she said.
Two-year-old Bhampo was in the house with the family’s domestic worker when the incident happened.
Police were still investigating. The car and stolen cellphones are yet to be recovered.
