Ms. Wang Wanzhen was a 39-year-old resident of Changbai County, Jilin Province. She used to suffer from serious pulmonary tuberculosis, which led to medical expenses of several thousands of yuan per year. After she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998, Ms. Wang recovered her health. In 2000, she went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa, after which the persecutors detained her in a house where they took her shoes away and handcuffed her to a door handle. With her hands shackled to the door handle, she could neither stand up straight nor squat down, with her bare feet on a concrete floor. After members of her family picked her up and took her home, the police came many times to harass Ms. Wang at home. The persecution left Wang Wanzhen seriously debilitated both mentally and physically, and she died in March 2001 as a result of the huge mental pressures inflicted on her.
