Eric Garner's Daughter, Erica Garner, Has Died

Eric Garner's Daughter, Erica Garner, Has Died

The Rev. Al Sharpton told NBC New York that the young social change fighter died of natural causes on Saturday morning at Woodhull Hospital.

Snipes-Garner says her daughter suffered her first heart attack not long after giving birth to a baby boy in August.

Racial justice activist Erica Garner died Saturday at the age of 27, days after going into cardiac arrest and less than four years after her father was put in a choke hold and killed by police while repeating, "I can't breathe". He was confronted by police officers on a Staten Island street corner for allegedly selling loose cigarettes.

Garner's death helped spark the "Black Lives Matter" movement.

"We didn't deserve her", her official Twitter account reported.

"She was a warrior to the end".

Garner gained national prominence after speaking out in the wake of her father's death in 2014 - an incident caught on cellphone video and one of several high-profile police encounters involving unarmed black men.

Ms Garner became a prominent member of the Black Lives Matter movement following her father's death.

Ayew said the three points have given the team a boost as they head into the new year. We believe we can stay (in the Premier League) but it will be tough, very tough work.

A person identified only as one of Erica's workers was posting updates on her Twitter account throughout the week.

"Her heart was bigger than the world", another tweet posted to her account read.

Mr Garner's last words, "I can't breathe", became a slogan for activists. A Justice Department civil rights investigation into the case is ongoing.

In a tweet on Saturday, de Blasio praised Erica Garner's "unshakable sense of justice and passion for humanity". A grand jury in December 2014 decided not to press charges against Pantaleo.

"I pray for peace and comfort for her family and loved ones", Hill added.

With former president Obama, Garner criticized his reactions to her father's death and the slow pace of the DOJ investigation.

"Even with my own heartbreak, when I demand justice, it's never just for Eric Garner", she wrote in The Washington Post in 2016.

Garner is survived by two children, including her three-month-old son Eric, named after her father. She also appeared in a campaign commercial for Sen.
