A Brief Report of the Incident:

 

At the end of July 1999, Ms. Guo Fengxia went to Shijiazhuang city to appeal to the local government against the ban of Falun Gong. In an attempt to stop her practice of Falun Gong, the government (including Wang Fan, Wang Suying, Li Jinfu, and Yu Xiuqin and other members from the government) pressured her family who gave in and reluctantly sent her to the No. 6 Hospital of Baoding city. She had been detained there for four days. There she was forcibly injected twice a day while the physical examinations showed that she was normal.

 

On September 10, 1999, she was detained in the Town police station because she didn't curse Falun Gong creator Master Li Hongzhi as they required. She was detained there for twenty-three days. She was released after she and other seventy Falun Gong practitioners went on hunger strike against the illegal detention. Again under high pressure from the Town government, her family sent her to the No. 2 Hospital of Hebei province. In the mental illness department of the hospital, all examinations showed she was normal, but she was still tied to a bed and drugs and injections were administered against her will twice a day. She also underwent electric shocks. After the “treatment”, she felt weak all over her body; she was very anxious and couldn't fall asleep; she couldn't stand on her feet. Neither could she sit or lay down. She couldn't help walking around. Once she started walking, she couldn't stop. Her vision became blurred; her tongue became short and stiff; and she drooled all the time; she had a difficult time speaking or eating.
