Erica Garner, daughter of police chokehold victim, dies in Brooklyn

Sister of Eric Garner, Erika, dies after heart attack

Erica Garner, an activist for social justice and the eldest daughter of the man who died from a police choke hold in NY in 2014, died on Saturday morning days after suffering a heart attack, her mother Esaw Snipes said.

Erica Garner suffered a heart attack and had been hospitalized since the day before Christmas Eve.

Since Garner went into a coma, friends and family have taken to using her Twitter account to deliver updates on her medical condition.

Garner was placed into a medically induced coma on December 23 after suffering a heart attack brought on by asthma. Her heart was greater than the world.

Garner became a vocal advocate against police brutality following the death of her father, Eric Garner, a Black Lives Matter icon.

Her father, Eric Garner, died after a police officer subdued him with a chokehold in 2014.

His last words, as he was being pinned to the ground, were, "I can't breathe". Erica Garner became a voice for police accountability after his death, criticizing Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio over policing matters. A CT scan showed that Garner, who was being treated at a hospital in Brooklyn, suffered "major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest", according to a statement posted Wednesday. The city settled out of court with Garner's family for $5.9 million in 2015 but the family insisted it was not a victory and renewed calls for federal charges in the case.

"She was a contender, she was a warrior and she lost the fight", Snipes said of her girl. Atlanta Black Star will be doing a more extensive piece to shine a light on the extensive work Garner has done and her legacy as an activist. "We didn't deserve her", the account tweeted.

A few months later, Erica staged a "die-in" on the same Staten Island N.Y. corner where her father was placed in an illegal chokehold and died. She also appeared in a campaign commercial for Sen. "I'm standing up, me being his girl", she said in the promotion.

"My thoughts are with Erica Garner, her family and friends in hoping that she has a full recovery and rejoins the struggle for justice as soon as possible".

"Many will say that Erica died of a heart attack, but that's only partially true because her heart was already broken when she couldn't get justice for her father", he said. "Her heart was attacked by a system that would choke her dad and not hold accountable those that did it".
