The family of three, were forcibly removed from their home in a village in Northern Vietnam.
They were then beaten, and the six-year-old daughter was beaten so badly she fell into a coma for a month. She has now regained consciousness but does not recognise her parents or remember the incident.
The family had recently stopped the village practice of ancestor worship and become Christians. The local authorities and the whole village had reportedly become angry with their decision to change their religion.
Refusing to deny their faith, the villagers carried out attacks, Open Doors said the family were, "mocked, tied with ropes and severely beaten while being dragged over rocky ground towards the entrance of the village, forcing them to leave."
Members of their church took them to a nearby hospital where they were treated for three days.
The family has returned to their home and village, after their pastor talked to local authorities to allow them back, however villagers are still threatening and "cursing" them because of their newfound faith.
Vietnam ranks 20 on the Open Doors World Watch List of where it is most difficult to be a Christian. The Communist government in Vietnam monitors Christian activity and exercises a high level of pressure on all Christians.
