Falun Gong practitioner Li Guimin lived on Neijia Street of Yi County, Hebei Province. In 2001, she was illegally sentenced to 8 years in prison. While in detention, Li went on a hunger strike to protest the detention. Police, led by the detention center director Liu Jinyou, brutally force-fed her by pouring food directly into her mouth. The food was inhaled into her lungs. The police didn't stop their brutal acts until her lungs bled and she passed out. Only then did they send her to the county hospital. Li died in the hospital on March 1, 2002. When she died, blood was oozing out from her nose and mouth.
