Mr. Wang Wenxue, 63, a Falun Gong practitioner and retired worker from Harbin Airplane Manufacturing Company, resided in Pingfang District, Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province.
In March 1996, Mr. Wang suffered a stroke and became unable to take care of himself. On April 26, 1996, he started to practice Falun Gong. Just four days into his practice, he was able to move around like a normal healthy person. For the four years he had been practicing, he had never taken any medicine and was able to return to work.
Because he persisted in his practice of Dafa, he was illegally arrested on June 1, 2000, and detained at the Pingfang District Detention Center for 15 days. It was June and the temperature was over 90oF. The police stripped off his clothes and forced him to lie on the sizzling cement floor, and instigated the jailed criminals to beat him. Mr. Wang died 29 days after he was released.
