A DEVASTATED dad dragged his son from a caravan blaze but the hero couldn’t save his other boy from the flames.  Tragic Zac Harvey, three, died in the inferno after brave Shaun Harvey, 28, pulled his four year-old son Harley from the fire but was unable to save his younger sibling.  Heartbroken neighbours who witnessed the aftermath of the blaze said the devastated dad screamed: “My boy’s dead.  “My boy’s dead. I’ve killed my boy.”  The shattered family have today released photos of Zac and his older brother Harvey celebrating Christmas.  Dad Shaun bravely rescued his four-year-old son Harley from the inferno but the flames were too strong for him to reach Zac in Ffair Rhos, West Wales.  Next-door neighbour Shaun Connolly, 55, said: “Shaun was screaming: “My boy’s dead. My boy’s dead. I’ve killed my boy.  “I was telling him that no one had killed anybody – but he was in such a state.  “The caravan went up like a tinder box, we were trying to reassure him he did everything he could to save his child.  “We ran a cold bath for him and his little boy, they were both in extreme pain.”  Their devastated mum desperately pleaded “where’s my baby?” after flames tore through the caravan during a weekend sleepover with their dad.  Erin Harvey, 28, was told her ex-husband Sean and her eldest son were in hospital after the blaze at a remote country village.  Locals told how Erin rang them in a state panic asking what had happened to her youngest child.  Miriam Connolly, 54, said: “I didn’t have the heart to tell her that her little boy had died.  “It is so tragic, he was such a lovely little boy who loved coming to stay with his dad at weekends.  “It’s so heartbreaking.”  Tree surgeon Mr Harvey was living in a caravan in his stepmother’s garden after breaking up with the boys’ mother last August.  The three were asleep in the caravan at 5am on Sunday morning when a blaze broke out.  Neighbours Mrs Connolly and her husband Shaun were woken by shouts and a plant pot being thrown at their window.  Mrs Connolly, 54, said: “They kicked the fence down to come to us for help. It was horrific.  “He was carrying his eldest boy in his arms, the poor tot had no eyebrows left.  “His father was in his underpants and the skin had been burned off his neck, shoulders and back.  “He’s had tried so hard to get back into the caravan to reach his other little boy but it was an inferno. It went up in a matter of seconds.” ‘HE TRIED SO HARD TO GET BACK IN’  They couple said Shaun was running an electric cable from the house into the two-berth touring caravan.  Shaun and his eldest son were taken to hospital in Aberystwyth.  The boy was later flown by air ambulance to a special burns unit in Bristol where he is in a critical condition.  Shaun is in
