(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Cao Changlin, 78 years old, began practicing Falun Dafa in 1994. Practicing Falun Dafa had made him very healthy, but recently, this healthy and highly virtuous gentleman was beaten to the verge of death and passed away seven days later.

On August 8, 2008, Mr. Cao was discovered missing after he left his home on Gutiansilu Street at 9:30 p.m., which is one hour after the Olympics began. His family looked for him everywhere, but could not find him. Three days later, the neighborhood administration (the branch of the CCP that keeps a file on each and every person living in any given neighborhood) notified his family that he had been taken by ambulance to the Wuhan City Tenth Hospital. They told the family that a traffic policeman reported him at around 10:00 p.m. on August 8, 2008 and called an ambulance, and they rushed him to the hospital.

Eyewitnesses said that when Mr. Cao entered the hospital there were three holes in his head along with many wounds. His ear was bleeding, and he could not see anything. His left shoulder bone was fractured, and his back was covered with bruises. His kidneys were injured also. He was lying there barely breathing, and was unconsciousness. His trachea was also cut open.

The hospital would not let his family get close to him, and they could only stay outside his room. After a doctor declared his death on August 15, 2008, they would not let his family change his clothes, but ordered the nurses to do it. His body was quickly cremated. More details are to be investigated.
