Eric Garner's activist daughter in coma after heart attack

Eric Garner's activist daughter in coma after heart attack

Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, who was killed in 2014 when NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo restrained him with an illegal chokehold, is in a coma after suffering a heart attack on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24).

The family of Erica Garner confirmed that she suffered a heart attack on December 23 and her condition has not improved.

Erica, who is also a mother of an 8-year-old daughter, gave birth to a boy in August, said Snipes-Garner.

Erica became a tireless activist against police brutality and state-sanctioned violence following the death of her father in July 2014.

"The Garner/Snipes family wants to thank you all for your prayers and support", the statement said.

"I need our youngsters, particularly our dissenters that is putting [their] bodies on hold to convey racial issues to the front line, to realize that their vote matters", she said.

'My sister had another heart attack last night and she's in critical condition, ' Emerald Snipes, Erica's sister, wrote on her Facebook page.

Family attorney Jonathan Moore told The Post Monday that Garner was in stable condition and surrounded by family.

According to the Daily News, "someone who said they worked for" Garner tweeted from her account December 24.

Erica Garner's condition has put a damper on the family's holiday cheer.

Erica Garner, 27, went into cardiac arrest on Saturday night and was rushed to an intensive care unit at a Brooklyn hospital. "Please PRAY for her". "More updates will come as they are available". In July 2015, the case was settled out of court and the city of NY paid Eric's family $5.9 million. Erica has two kids - an eight-year-old daughter and a four-month-old son, named Eric, after her father.

The incident was caught on video, with Garner repeatedly saying, "I can't breathe". She stood out as truly newsworthy in February when she supported Bernie Sanders for president. "She's fighting", the mom said.

Erica's foster mother, Tanya Goode, left the Brooklyn hospital distraught.
