Ms. Ma Yong'an, 60, was from Hongmiao Village, Guohe Town, Xiantao City, Hubei Province. She was recently living in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province with her child. In September 2007, she was arrested while passing out truth clarifying materials in a supermarket, and was taken to the Sanshui Women's Labor Camp after being sentenced to one year of forced labor. One day in April 2008, she vomited up white bubbles after a meal. The Labor Camp doctor had a nurse collect three tubes of blood from her for testing. Guards brought her a bucket of water and wanted her to drink it. Ms. Ma passed out right after drinking the water. Several days later, one of the guards notified her family to pick her up. She died less then one month after returning home, on May 23, 2008.
