The grandmother drops the hot wax on the hapless child not once, but three times. In addition to this, she hits the child on his head and back several times. Not satisfied, the cruel woman lifts the child from the ground and punches him in the stomach. To keep the child from crying further, she puts a finger to her lip and uses the tissue paper on the floor to cover his mouth.
