Ms. Yang Gaoshi was a 93-year-old resident of Qingle Village, Xinxingmanzu Town, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province. In 1996, she began to practice Falun Dafa. Her son, grandson and granddaughter-in-law also practice Falun Dafa. After the persecution started, her son and granddaughter-in-law were arrested twice and severely tortured. The elderly lady went to the brainwashing center to ask the persecutors to release her son and granddaughter-in-law. Members of the local 610 Office manhandled her and dragged her out of the brainwashing center. Ms. Yang was injured by this brutal treatment and she became bedridden. In December 8, 2002, Ms. Yang died.
