On February 16, 2000, she was thrown into the so-called "Falun Gong Transformation and Detention Center" held by the Chengguan Street Office. The communist officials beat her using plastic sticks and electric batons. Other detained practitioners could hear her painful screams. The communist officials demanded her to recant her belief while beating her madly, but she firmly refused. On the morning of February 20, 2000, Chen, who was half-dead, was forced to crawl barefooted in the snow. Two days of torture left severe injuries in her legs. Chen vomited and fainted. She never regained her consciousness.
