Sister killed as boy, 8, drove car

Recordings of emergency calls released by police show a witness followed a car driven by a little boy for more than 10 minutes before it crashed and killed his little sister.

At about the same time, the children's frantic mother called 911 to report someone had taken her two older children and her car was gone.

The sobbing mother is heard begging for help from neighbours in Phoenix, Arizona, and then discovering her spare key is missing.

The calls document a tragic joyride up and down a main Phoenix road by the boy that ended when he swerved and hit a utility pole. He was slightly hurt but six-year-old Aaliyah Felder was killed.
