The disciplinary guard delayed Dafa practitioners' release dates by extending their terms. Because of this, Dafa practitioners started to rectify the Fa. Many of them started hunger strikes to protest. A guard started dragging a fellow practitioner away for beatings, so Zhao Fengxia went forward to take her back, but was viciously beaten. She lost consciousness and lost control of her bladder. After she was sent back she did not cooperate with the regulations. Because of this the guards Zhang Bo and Yang Yan beat her up severely, and tied her to the bed leg, which made her unable to stand up or squat down for five days and nights. One day when it was hot and stuffy and thunder was rolling, she had a feeling Dafa practitioner might again suffer. It turned out that the evil guard Wang Min tied over forty Dafa practitioners in the torture position called "Flying the Airplane." They were hung up very high and could not touch the ground.
