Activist Erica Garner Dies at 27

Civil rights activist Erica Garner dies from heart attack Erica Garner Cause Of Death: How Did Eric Garner's Daughter Die?
Erik Tate | 31 December, 2017, 02:04

Garner, who is the oldest daughter of Eric Garner, who died in July 2014 after NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo restrained him with an illegal chokehold, was on life support at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., after suffering a heart attack on Christmas Eve. "Physically she is still with us". She was good. She only pursued right, no matter what.

Following her father's death, Garner led marches in NY and elsewhere, drawing attention to the plight of African-Americans who've been victims of police brutality.

Erica Garner had been in a coma since last Saturday, when she suffered a heart attack, according to local news reports and the Twitter account.

Snipes said the cardiac arrest was brought on by an asthma attack. Garner's last words, "I can't breathe", became a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement. "I have had the privilege of joining with her at a number of events and was deeply impressed with her courage and insights", Sanders tweeted Friday.

Garner became a civil rights activist after video of her father's chokehold death at the hands of a NY police officer went viral and his final words "I can't breathe" became a rallying cry for police reform activists. Her official Twitter account, which has posted updates on her condition throughout the week, confirmed her death on Saturday morning.

When Erica Garner gave birth to a son in August, she named him after her father.

A Staten Island grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo in 2014; the officer remains on modified duty. "She left on her own terms". 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.
