Erica Garner, Activist Daughter of Chokehold Victim, Brain Dead

Doctors have listed the daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner as brain dead with no chance of recovery - five days after the mother of two suffered a massive heart attack, the Daily News has learned.

"Leaving hospital after praying for Erica Snipes, daughter of Eric Garner, who suffered a serious heart attack", he wrote on Twitter.

"She's not gone, she's brain dead", Erica's mother told the pub.

'Physically she is still with us'. His apparent last words - "I can't breathe!" Garner emerged as a fiery critic of the NYPD and police brutality after Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo killed her father in July 2014 using a chokehold-a technique the department had banned. Garner senior's death helped to galvanize the Black Lives Matter movement, a cause his daughter took up after her father's demise.

Mr Moore denied the claims and said he has taken and passed a polygraph test to prove they are false. Moore has denied wrongdoing and Reuters has not been able to independently verify the allegations.

After their father's death, Emerald, the third oldest, created a fund through Indiegogo to raise money for the Garner siblings.

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

Her newborn son was named in honor of his fallen grandfather in August. Doctors said the pregnancy stressed her already enlarged heart. His daughter became an activist after his death, even appearing in a campaign ad for then-presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

From three years ago, she never stopped. An out-of-court settlement in which the city agreed to pay the Garner family $5.9 million was announced in 2015. Her lawyer said she believed grief and emotional trauma was at least partially to blame.
