做噩梦(死)(zuò èmèng (sǐ)): death by nightmare

"He died suddenly of a nightmare." (Artist: Zhuhuiqing)
Suspicious cause of inmate Li Wenyan's death claimed by prison officials.

On March 27, 2009, a 50-year-old man named Li Wenyan died in the Jiujiang City Detention Center in Jiangxi. Officials claimed that a nightmare had caused his sudden death. Li had cried out in the middle of a bad dream, but died hours later in a hospital bed. The family noticed large bruises on Li's forehead.

Li was one of several inmates who died under suspicious circumstances in early 2009. A young farmer named Li Qiaoming (no relation) died in February of that year after an alleged game of hide-and-seek. While these cases spurred a national outcry and policy reforms, a May 2015 Human Rights Watch report reveals the continued torture of inmates.


Example of "death by nightmare":

@Benlee_MM: What's Up With "Naturally"?: Recently, a criminal surnamed Wang in the Nehe Prison in Heilongjiang had relations with the wife of a certain Officer Li. And the surveillance video was "naturally" lost? In '09 a young man from Yunnan, Li Qiaoming, died from "hide-and-seek" in detention, and the camera was "naturally" broken; in the same year Li Wenyan from Wuhan died from a nightmare while in detention, and the surveillance hard disk was "naturally" broken. Government credibility has been eroded by responisble leaders failing to see this footage and not recognizing the mistake. Do you believe it? I do! (January 25, 2015)
【果然是这么回事】最近黑龙江讷河监狱服刑犯王某与警察妻子李某在狱中发生关系,监控视频“果然”丢了?云南青年李乔明09年在看守所“躲猫猫”死了,摄像头"果然"坏了;武汉男子李文彦09年在看所做噩梦死了,监控硬盘“果然”坏了。责任领导不见视频不认错的态度造成了政府公信力伤害。你信吗,我信![Chinese]
