(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Gao Rongrong was shocked with electric batons by labor camp guards for seven consecutive hours and was disfigured as a result, while she was detained in the Longshan Forced Labor Camp. She eventually was tortured to death in June 2005. The following was narrated by a medical worker who heard about the persecution of Gao Rongrong:

I am a medical worker. Recently my hospital admitted a patient who used to be in the same ward with Gao Rongrong at the China Medical University Hospital. She said that the guards of the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp brought Gao Rongrong to the emergency room at China Medical University Hospital some time in June 2005. Gao was clear-headed and able to sit up, but completely emaciated. Seven or eight guards in civilian clothes took turns watching Gao and prohibited her from talking. Whenever the guards were not watching, Gao explained Falun Gong to the other patient. The guards would not provide her with food. She longed to see her aged father. Whenever the guards came in, she closed her eyes. Although, they did not allow her any food, the guards recorded details about foods that they claimed she ate, in a notebook. She suffered greatly in this manner.

The other patient asked the guards why Gao Rongrong was not allowed to eat and was told that it was because she was a Falun Gong practitioner. When the other patient wanted to know why they nevertheless recorded in their notebooks that she was taking in food, they replied that their superior had ordered them to record this information and to put it into a report.
