A Brief Report of the Incident:

 

Because Ms. Bai Yuzhi insisted on practicing Falun Gong and went to Beijing many times to appeal to the government against the ban of Falun Gong, she was repeatedly detained by the police and her home was ransacked by the police several times. On October 1st, 1999, she was sentenced to three years at the labor camps. She was first held at the Shijizhuang Female Labor Camp, Tangshan Kaipin Labor Station, and then moved to a labor station in the city of Baoding. While in the labor camps, she held a hunger strike for more than 3 months, asking for the right to perform the Falun Gong exercises. During this time, her weight dropped from more than 110 pounds to less than 80 pounds. The prison officials tried to force-feed her by using a feeding tube everyday. It caused severe damage to her esophagus and stomach lining. She could no longer walk steadily on her own, and the feeding tube was often covered with blood when it was taken out. Afterwards she often vomited large amounts of blood and even secretions from her pancreas. In spite of this, the authorities decided to punish her even further by sending her to the Ankang Drug Rehabilitation Center in the city of Tangshan. She was forcefully injected with illegal drugs, which made her feel as if there were bugs crawling all over her body. While giving her a physical examination, the hospital discovered that she had no blood pressure, and when they tried to run an EKG, the machine kept making all kinds of strange noises and stopped working. They came to the realization that she would likely bleed to death if they tried to force-feed her one more time. Not wanting to be held responsible for her death, they told her family to take her back home.
