An evil stepmother gouged out the eyes of her four-year-old stepson because he wet the bed.
The youngster, who has not been named, is thought to have wet his bed in the night before he was allegedly set upon by his dad's wife in the horrific attack which happened in the province of Masvingo, Central Zimbabwe.
It is claimed the woman has admitted the crime and was laughing about carrying out the evil deed when police arrived.
Local reports claim the woman was saying: "He isn't my child" to officers who questioned her motives.
Pictures of the boy after the attack are a horrifying sight. The lad is sitting on the ground with his eye sockets a ruined mess of tissue.
His clothes are stained with blood.
It was not clear whether the boy’s father was present at the time of the attack.
Details of what charges the woman would face over the incident were not released and her legal status was not reported.
The case is believed to be ongoing.
None of the people involved were named in reports.
Involuntary urination is common in children up to age four, and around one in 12 children regularly wet their bed at age four and a half, says the NHS.
Around one in 40 children still wet the bed at seven and a half and, surprisingly, the NHS says around one in 100 people continue bedwetting into adulthood.
