I have some heartbreaking news to share with all of you right now. It’s being reported that police brutality activist and daughter of victim Eric Garner, Erica Garner, has been declared brain dead following a massive heart attack this past Saturday (December 23).

The mother of two’s family members were being called early Thursday to Woodhull Hospital to say final goodbyes, with her mother Esaw Snipes stating:

“She’s not gone, she’s brain dead. Physically she is still with us.”

The person currently running her Twitter account states that a CAT scan revealed that she had suffered brain damage “from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest.”

Her father’s pleas of “I can’t breathe!” as he was put into a chokehold by Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo — a chokehold the NYPD had banned — helped spark the Black Lives Matter movement and spurred Erica to become an advocate against police brutality.

When her son was born in August, she named her newborn after her fallen father.
