A 10-year-old boy’s visit to his great-grandmother’s place for Christmas ended in pain and tears after a handgrenade detonated in his pocket.

The grenade ripped his stomach open and shredded his hand and arm, shattering his family’s Christmas Eve final preparations for the big day, on December 25.

Sibusiso said that when they found the grenade he recognised it as similar to ones he had seen on TV.

He said they showed it to their aunt, who ignored them because she did not know what it was.
