Sister of Eric Garner, Erika, dies after heart attack

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

Erica Garner died Saturday, after spending almost a week in a medically induced coma at a NY hospital.

When you report this you remember she was human: mother, daughter, sister, aunt.

Garner was first diagnosed with heart problems while pregnant, and she had only given birth a few months earlier. It was Garner's second heart attack.

Eric Garner's oldest daughter Erica has died at the age of 27, roughly one week after suffering a devastating heart attack.

Garner became a vocal advocate against police brutality following the death of her father, Eric Garner, a Black Lives Matter icon.

A message posted on her Twitter account said she had brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest". Doctors discovered her heart had become enlarged due to the tension brought on by the pregnancy. His last words were "I can't breathe", which became a slogan for activists.

De Blasio later offered his condolences to Garner's family, and called her death "a disgusting tragedy".

Now, unfortunately, she has passed away. May you find the peace in the next life that you deserved while you were here.

She emerged onto the scene after her father died while he was being arrested at Victory Boulevard and Bay Street in Tompkinsville for allegedly selling loose cigarettes in 2014. "Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much".

Her death also attracted attention via social media.

"They stayed with her to the end - she was a warrior to the end", he said. 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.

Eric Garner was killed in 2014 during an altercation with police when NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo put him in a chokehold.

"We are just praying for a miracle", added Rev. Al Sharpton at the time.

"Erica took the truth with her everywhere she went, even if that truth made people uncomfortable", he said, recalling her willingness to confront President Barack Obama and demand that he take a stand against racially charged policing tactics.
