(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liu Caiying is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Liuguantun Village, Poyu Town, Weihai City, Shandong Province. She was arrested by local "610 Office" personnel, tortured until becoming extremely weak, and died on October 5, 2003, soon after returning home.

Ms. Liu Caiying, 48 years of age, was arrested when posting Falun Dafa banners, and detained by the local 610 Office. She went on hunger strike to protest the persecution, and was handcuffed outdoors onto an "iron chair." (1) Suffering from hunger and cold, her buttocks grew bloody blisters. Eventually she became emaciated. She often vomited blood due to brutal force-feeding. The prison doctor requested that the 610 Office release her, but this was rejected.

One month later, she was close to death. The guards were afraid of being held responsible, so they released her. Since her stomach was damaged by force-feeding, she could not eat anything after she returned home. She was sent to the hospital, but it was too late. She died on October 5, 2003.

1. The chair is made of metal pipes. Victims are restrained on the iron chairs with both arms and legs tied for a long period of time. See http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2002/1/9/17577.html
