Erica Garner Suffered 'Major Brain Damage' After Cardiac Arrest

Erica Garner Suffered 'Major Brain Damage' After Cardiac Arrest”

A series of tweets went out on Erica Garner's verified Twitter account asking people to pray for the activist.

Eric Garner's daughter Erica Garner takes part in candlelight vigil at the site where her father died in July a year ago after being put in a chokehold, during a Martin Luther King Day service in the Staten Island borough of New York January 19, 2015.

Garner was rushed to the hospital Saturday after she suffered a severe heart attack.

But she also suffered her first heart attack shortly after the delivery, with doctors saying the pregnancy stressed her already enlarged heart.

The 27-year-old daughter of Eric Garner, the Black man who was killed after being placed in a chokehold by a NYPD officer in 2014, is now being held in the intensive care unit at Brooklyn hospital.

Garner's mother, Esaw Snipes, told The New York Times that her daughter was in a medically induced coma following a heart attack, the newspaper reported.

Garner, who had asthma, was pronounced dead that day. She has challenged former President Barack Obama's administration and Justice Department for its investigation into Eric Garner's death. "I pray she makes it; she has two little ones to live for", Snipes wrote. "She gets on my last nerve but I'd rather fight with my sister then to lose her". Eric Garner's death was ruled a homicide. The city of NY settled with Eric Garner's estate for $5.9 million in July 2015.

"I can't really say it's a black and white issue", she said.

Others offered their condolences as well, including Bernie Sanders, for whom Erica had campaigned during the 2016 election.

"NYPD cleared me out of the ICU leaving Erica BY HERSELF WITH NO EXPLANATION", the person continued. "That's what I want to do".

Sanders on Tuesday tweeted that his thoughts were with her and praised her "courage and insights".

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