For the first week he was taken to the Wanjia Forced Labor Camp for so-called "training." Then he was transferred to the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp. In the labor camp, the evil guards tried to brainwash him. The guards hit him with electric batons and tortured him. Meantime, he was forced into slave labor until midnight each day. Due to the brutal mistreatment, he again developed hypertension. His blood pressure was 260/180. He also developed serious heart problems. Even so, he was never allowed to take a break from his work. When he could physically no longer work, he was still made to accompany the others and could only rest when everyone had finished their work at midnight.
