Dai Wei, male, born on January 5, 1969 and killed at the age of 20. Before his death he worked as a cook at the Hepingmen Roast Duck Restaurant. At 11:00 p.m. on the evening of June 3, he was killed en route to work. His ashes have been lain to rest at Changping Cemetery.
Testimony of Liu Xiuchen, mother of Dai Wei:
On the evening of June 3, Dai was headed for the Hepingmen Roast Duck Restaurant located at Qianmen to work the night shift. While walking by the No. 7 bus line's stop on the western side of the Minorities Hotel, he ran into the martial law troops, who opened fire. The bullet entered through his back and pierced through his chest. He was taken to the Posts Hospital, but efforts to save him failed. He had lost too much blood, and he died shortly before dawn on June 4.
After I learned of my son's killing, I became mentally unstable and paralyzed in my lower body. I had to stay in the hospital for over half a year. After having undergone numerous treatments, I have managed to stay alive but my body is very weak and I suffer from many ailments; my spirits are dim and the wounds inside of me cannot be closed.
At the time his sister Dai Ju had just announced that she would take the entrance exam for the police academy and had already met various requirements. But because of her older brother's situation, she was implicated and was unable to enroll. Later on, she took the exam for No. 32 Middle School, where she was accepted and achieved superior results, performing at the top of her class. But upon graduation, she was assigned to work at her older brother's unit, the Hepingmen Roast Duck Restaurant, where she simply uses her own labor to earn a living.
