Terrifying: The therapist covers Li's skin with a wet towel before lighting another alcohol-soaked towel over his skin.
Li Hang comes from the city of Harbin in the neighbouring Heilongjiang Province.
He was diagnosed with the Prader–Willi syndrome at the age of three, according to China Daily.
When he was four years old, he already weighed 6.7 stone (94 pounds), which was about 2.5 times the weight of his peers.
The average weight for a four-year-old boy in China is 2.6 stone (36.6 pounds), according to China's National Health and Family Planning Commission.
