Mr. Liu Xiaoren, 70, was a retired worker from the No. 1 Automobile Factory of Changchun City, Jilin Province. Mr. Liu once suffered from diabetes and was critically ill. In 1995 he recovered miraculously after practicing Falun Gong, and was invited back to teach at his former factory. After July 20, 1999, being constantly harassed by the local police and authorities, Mr. Liu was forced to move. His illnesses came back and he eventually died in 2002.
