"While the boy was entering the fast food outlet the door snapped closed on his hand. Paramedics dealt with the traumatic amputation of the child’s finger," he said.

"The boy was treated and stabilised at the scene, before being transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital," Herbst added.

He said that doctors would attempt to reattach the finger.
