Wang Xin, male, 28, started to practice Falun Dafa in 1999. In late 1999, he was detained for the first time because he went to Beijing to appeal. Soon afterwards, he was released. In 2000, he was detained once again for going to a city to share experiences with other practitioners. Later that year he was sentenced to 2 years in a labor camp and sent to the second labor camp.
In 2000, to protest the torture by the labor camp, Wang Xin went on his first hunger strike that lasted for over 60 days.
In late May 2000, the guard in the labor camp beat Wang Xin for no reason and also prevented him from practicing Dafa exercises. Once again, Wang went on a hunger strike to protest. Soon, he was taken to the labor camp hospital for forced feeding and transfusion. At around 3:00 pm on July 2, the guard informed Wang's family that Wang was dying. Wang's family immediately took Wang to the provincial hospital for emergency treatment.
According to Wang's family, Wang Xin had only one breath left when he was admitted to the hospital. He passed away at around 7:00 pm the same evening.
