Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Xiao Hongxiu, 65, was a resident of Qiqiao Town, Chongqing City, Liangping County. On July 25, 2004, she was tortured to death in the Chongqing City Yongchuan Women's Prison.
Ms. Xiao Hongxiu was subjected to physical and mental torture by prison police for a long period of time. The abuse included injecting her with unknown medicine even though she had no illness; forced labor; not allowing her to rest even though she was extremely weak from the long-term abuse, and forcing her to remain standing all day long when she was too weak to work. Ms. Xiao lost consciousness several times while doing forced labor, until she finally died in Yongchuan Prison.
