Ms. Yan Xiling, 55 years-old, was a farmer from Kangzhuang Village, Jiezhuang Township, Xinshi Borough, Baoding City. When she attained the Fa in 1998, she had a gastric disease. After beginning to practice Falun Gong, however, her body rapidly became healthy. When the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, community members Zhang Liuxing and Han Guozhan reported her to the authorities. At 11:30 p.m. on September 29, 2002, the Jiezhuang police took her from her home to the police station. She was later sent to the Baoding City detention center, where her body and spirit were severely damaged from persecution. Ms. Yan Xiling was released on December 9, 2002. Then, on December 29, 20 days after she returned home, Ms. Yan Xiling passed away.
