Eric Garner's eldest daughter is in a coma, her family says

Erica Garner, Daughter of Eric Garner, In Critical Condition After Suffering Heart Attack

Erica Garner, the 27-year-old activist and daughter of Eric Garner, the man who died after a New York Police Department officer put him in a chokehold in 2014, has been hospitalized following a heart attack, according to multiple news reports.

Erica Garner gained notoriety as a advocate against police brutality in the wake of her father, Eric Garner's tragic death in 2014.

"The Garner/Snipes family wants to thank you all for your prayers and support", read a message on Garner's Twitter account Monday morning from someone identifying themselves as her associate. "I pray she makes it", her sister said.

Erica Garner's sister, Emerald Snipes, shared in a Facebook post that Garner's condition didn't appear to be improving when she left an unnamed hospital following a visit on Christmas Eve.

"My sister had another heart attack last night and she's in critical condition", Snipes wrote.

According to the Daily News, "someone who said they worked for" Garner tweeted from her account December 24. At this moment there are no updates on Erica's condition. They ask that you take this holiday to enjoy your loved ones and for self care. "More updates will come as they are available". He was placed in an illegal chokehold by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo on Staten Island. Erica has two kids - an eight-year-old daughter and a four-month-old son, named Eric, after her father. In July 2015, the case was settled out of court and the city of NY paid Eric's family $5.9 million.

Garner complained repeatedly that he could not breathe.

Her national stature expanded to the point that she introduced former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at a SC campaign rally a year ago and become one of his most visible boosters.

"Right now, the family is just praying and asking for everyone to keep her in their prayers", Snipes told the Times.

Erica's foster mother, Tanya Goode, left the Brooklyn hospital distraught. "I'm speaking out, me being his daughter", she said in the ad.
