Ke Ling was illegally arrested because she went to appeal for Falun Dafa. The local police often interrogated her after midnight. While her hands were cuffed behind her back, 8-9 policemen took turns beating her, with another policeman stomping on her legs. As a result, she had difficulty walking. Later on, she was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor education and sent to the Shibalihe Female Labor Camp in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. Several days later the labor camp claimed that she had blood poisoning and sent her home. A couple of days after she returned home, she passed away. Before she died, the police asked her what she thought about her situation. She said, "I'm sorry that I did not do well in this lifetime. I feel I have let down Teacher. In my next life, I will continue cultivating Dafa."

Ke Ling lost her life just because she strived to be a good person.
