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

Daughter Of Eric Garner Leads Protest March In Staten Island

Erica Garner, the daughter of police brutality victim Eric Garner, has died, according to the New York Daily News.

Garner had been placed in a medically induced coma last week after an asthma episode precipitated a major heart attack. The person running her popular Twitter account told Garner's 35K followers Wednesday that a CT scan revealed that she had suffered brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest".

Friends and activists are visiting the NY hospital where Black Lives Matter icon Eric Garner's eldest daughter is in grave condition after a heart attack. Eric Garner's death drew national attention after he was put in a chokehold by NYPD officers for selling illegal loose cigarettes despite declaring "I can't breathe".

Video of Mr Garner's arrest and his last words "I can't breathe" went viral on social media and became a key catalyst for the Black Lives Matter movement.

"She passed away this morning", a tweet posted to Erica Garner's Twitter account by family members Saturday morning read.

"It's just sad to see her laying there and not the active Erica that we know", Sharpton added.

Eric Garner died after a police officer subdued him with a chokehold in 2014. She cared when most people wouldn't have. A Justice Department probe into Garner's death has yet to conclude.

De Blasio called Garner's death a "horrible tragedy" in a tweet.

Since her father's death, Erica has had two children, including a child in August whom she named after her father. She also told NBCBLK that her goal was to continue fighting for justice for him and others caught in similar situations. "You have to lead by example, ' now I understand why", Garner said in the video. A grand jury declined to indict the officer involved, although the city of NY reached a $5.9 million settlement with the Garner family in 2015 for a wrongful-death lawsuit. "Because her heart was already broken when she couldn't get justice for her father".

In 2016, she campaigned on behalf of independent senator Bernie Sanders in his bid to run for president.
