Daughter of police victim declared brain dead

Jumaane Williams is suggested Erica Garner has passed away by posting an emotional tweet

"She's not gone; she's brain dead", Esaw Snipes said.

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.

When Erica Garner's son was born in August, she named her newborn after her father. The elder Garner had been put into a chokehold by an officer with the New York Police Department and could be heard pleading, "I can't breathe!"

A worker running Garner's Twitter account stated Wednesday night that a "cat scan shows Erica suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest".

"Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much", it added.

In July 2014, police attempted to arrest Eric Garner, a 43-year-old father of six, for allegedly selling cigarrettes illegally in Staten Island.

Erica has since become a leading activist for Black Lives Matter and has gained a loyal following and respect for her movement. Snipes declined to name the hospital where her daughter was being treated.

A prominent civil rights activist whose father was killed by a New York City police officer was declared brain dead early Thursday with no chance of recovery. Below we feature Erica Garner, in her own words, from her interviews on Democracy Now!

Garner has been in a coma since Saturday after an asthma attack triggered the massive heart attack.

Erica Garner became an outspoken - and unfiltered - critic on Twitter.
