Dafa practitioner Yu Qiushi was a 64-year-old woman. In late December 2001 she was illegally arrested when distributing truth clarification flyers. Because she refused to cooperate with the evil, vicious police sent her to a hospital after she held a hunger strike for 11 days. She was injected her with an unknown drug that caused constant distension of the abdomen. Her family was not allowed to take her home until she was on the verge of death. She died at home 70 days later, on March 16, 2002.
