Erica Garner declared brain dead with no chance of recovery

The New York Daily News reported that Erica Garner was declared brain dead with no chance of recovery. Snipes-Garner says her daughter suffered her first heart attack not long after giving birth to a baby boy in August. "Physically she is still with us". "It's just sad to see her laying there and not the active Erica that we know".

The 27-year-old was put into a medically-induced coma after going into cardiac arrest Saturday night, which was brought on by an asthma attack, her family has said in media interviews and on social media.

The Twitter account hit back at a condolence message from Brooklyn Councilman Jumaane Williams after he prematurely said on Thursday that Garner had died.

A lot of Twitter users have reached out to send prayers to Erica, including Bernie Sanders among others.


Her mother had earlier confirmed the heart attack was triggered by an asthma attack. "RIP @es_snipes. That family still needs us #Garner", Williams tweeted. "Doctors said Erica Garner's pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged", the outlet writes.

According to the article, Eric Garner had been living with Jewel, his girlfriend, for more than three years at the time of his death. A grand jury did not indict any officers over his death, a decision that prompted protests across the country.

After their father's death, Emerald, the third oldest, created a fund through Indiegogo to raise money for the Garner siblings. Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner who died after a New York City police officer strangled him in a chokehold, asks a question of Democratic presidential candidate Sen.
