A 24-year-old KwaZulu-Natal man who was hijacked on Sunday evening and held hostage for more than 24 hours in multiple locations in Durban is said to be “resting and recovering” from his trauma.
His father, Dr Elton Dorkin, said Chad had been driving home after visiting a friend in his silver Toyota Yaris when he was hijacked by three attackers.
Dorkin said they were grateful for the prayers and support of the community.
“We are deeply appreciative of the Durban community which came together and supported us during this painful experience.”
The hijack sent shockwaves around the city. After police and private security efforts, Chad was released and reunited with his family in the vicinity of Queen Nandi Drive, north of Durban.
