Wang Jijia, a 45-year-old man from Hengyang City, Hunan Province, began to practice Falun Dafa in 1995. At about 11:30pm on January 22, 2001, six policemen from the Huanchengnanlu police station of Hengyang public security bureau came to his house to arrest him. Wang refused to open the door so the policemen threatened to pry open the door. In order not to be taken away by the vicious police, Wang climbed up to the platform on the top of the building, but his way was blocked by some other policemen who had been there waiting to catch him. While being chased, Wang lost his balance and fell to the ground from the nine-story building. He died on the spot.
