Ms. Huang Ling, a former employee of the recycling station of Great Bridge, in Anjiang, Hunan Province, went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. The authorities, including the 610 Office, imprisoned and persecuted her. Subsequently, her employer fired her and her husband also left her. These numerous atrocities led to her mental collapse, and in 2004 she died, a woman in her thirties, away from her home in a hotel.
