Practitioner Mr. Nan Xiqiang, 73, lived in Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province. He suffered from diminished brain function and partial paralysis, but he recovered through practicing Falun Dafa. On April 4, 2000, he and his wife were arrested while doing the exercises at a public practice site. They were held at the No. 2 Detention Center in Shuangcheng City. After he was released, before his health was completely recovered, a fellow practitioner carried him on his back to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa. He was again detained and tortured. After he returned home, he lived under tremendous pressure from the persecution and passed away in September 2001.
