She's tied up to a cross and about to be burned when she's rescued by her brothers, who then put on the magical shirts she made to undo their curse and return to their human forms; the youngest Prince/Swan returns the unharmed baby to her. Then the Witch tries to summon a powerful wind... [[KarmicDeath and reignites the witch-burning pyre, burning herself to death instead]].
