Activist Erica Garner, daughter of police chokehold victim, dies after heart attack

Civil rights activist Erica Garner dies from heart attack

Erica Garner, 27, had been fighting for her life since she suffered a massive heart attack a week ago.

"She was a warrior, she was a fighter and we didn't pull the plug on her", said Esaw Snipes, Garner's mother.

Garner, daughter of Black Lives Matter icon Eric Garner died in NY on Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, after a weeklong hospital stay following a heart attack. In September, the city's Civilian Complaint Review Board recommended the NYPD discipline Pantaleo because he used a banned chokehold while trying to arrest Garner.

The daughter of Black Lives Matter icon Eric Garner died Saturday after a week-long hospital stay following a heart attack. She was always at rallies, she was always calling me, 'Reverend, we'll do this.

"Erica the world loves you". I cherish you. I am happy you came into our lives. May you find the peace in the next life that you deserved while you were here. Officer Daniel Pantaleo placed Garner in an unlawful chokehold; after being lowered to the ground, Garner was restrained by several officers. It was Garner's second heart attack. "She was good. She only pursued right, no matter what". NYPD officers later called an ambulance for Garner after noticing his breathing difficulty, but he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Since Garner went into a coma, friends and family have taken to using her Twitter account to deliver updates on her medical condition. "The police are killing our people - that's reason enough not to fight amongst ourselves", she wrote.

Amid the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, she supported Sen.

Thousands of people sent her well-wishes over the past week, including U.S. politicians, artists, civil rights activists and others.

Erica Garner is the eldest little girl of Eric Garner, a 43-year-old father of six.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has regularly been the objective of Garner's reactions, offered his sympathies on Saturday. Pantaleo testified before a grand jury but was not indicted.

The 27-year-old passed away on Saturday morning after being hospitalised last week, a member of her team posted on her official Twitter account. "Her heart was assaulted by a framework that would gag her father and not consider responsible those that did it".

"Many will state that Erica kicked the bucket of a heart assault, however that is just in part evident in light of the fact that her heart was at that point broken when she couldn't get equity for her dad", he said. "She left on her own terms".
