(Clearwisdom.net) Former manager Mr. Du Sian of Nanyang City Meat Processing Factory in Henan Province suffered from severe sores on his leg in 1995 and was told that he needed to amputate the leg to avoid the spread of infection. The sores, however, miraculously disappeared after he read the book Zhuan Falun and began to practice Falun Gong.

After enduring the Chinese Communist Party's persecution for over 10 years, Mr. Du's health began to deteriorate, he started suffering from edema, and he became bedridden near the end of 2009. He passed away on April 28, 2010, at the age of 85.

Mr. Du and his wife, both practitioners, have been illegally arrested, closely monitored and harassed many times. Their home was also repeatedly ransacked.

Mr. Du's youngest son, Mr. Du Xu, died as a result of the torture he endured for his belief in Falun Gong.

Mr. Du Xu was arrested at home by officers from the National Security Team of the Wancheng District Police Department in Nanyang City on November 15, 2000. He was severely tortured and taken to the Nanyang City No. 1 Hospital for an emergency rescue at about 1 p.m. on November 28, 2000, after being in critical condition. His family was not notified until 7 p.m. According to the hospital records, Mr. Du Xu suffered from a brain contusion, heart congestion, several fractures in his left leg, swollen and bruised eyes, legs, and feet, and other injuries. He passed away at 5:30 a.m. on January 10, 2001.
