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

26 December 2017

Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, leads a march of people protesting the Staten Island, New York grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer involved in the chokehold death of Eric Garner in July, on December 11, 2014 in the Staten Island Neighborhood of New York City.

Her mother, Esaw Snipes-Garner, told the News that her daughter's condition was grave.

Erica Garner calls for further justice and legal action against the police officers responsible in the death of her father, Eric Garner.

Miss Garner, whose father's life was taken by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in a chokehold in 2014, is on life support in ICU in a Brooklyn hospital, reports the NY Daily News.

"The Garner/Snipes family wants to thank you all for your prayers and support", the family wrote on her official Twitter account.

"I need our youngsters, particularly our dissenters that is putting [their] bodies on hold to convey racial issues to the front line, to realize that their vote matters", she said.

The doctors removed the bullet, reconstructed his jaw and placed him into an artificial coma for 72 hours. During these years, this little village echoed the Palestinian struggle all over the world.

Erica Garner, 27, went into cardiac arrest on Saturday night and was rushed to an intensive care unit at a Brooklyn hospital.

Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which doctors discovered was enlarged, her mother said.

Family attorney Jonathan Moore told The Post Monday that Garner was in stable condition and surrounded by family. "So, she's not doing well". "As of now there are no updates", the family said. "I'll tweet updates as I have them". Erica Garner became a vocal advocate against police brutality. A few months later, Erica staged a "die-in" on the same Staten Island N.Y. corner where Eric Garner died after being placed in an illegal chokehold.

Eric Garner was an unarmed black man whose 2014 death at the hands of New York City police sparked protests. She was an outspoken supporter of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election.

'I just left the hospital and it's not looking good. "I'm speaking out, me being his daughter", she said in the ad.
