On Dec. 28, New York Daily News reported that Garner, 27, was declared brain dead by doctors without a chance of recovery.

Family members rushed to Woodhull Hospital in Queens to say their final goodbyes to Garner, who became an outspoken critic of police brutality after her father's death in 2014.

She remained on life support as of Thursday morning, her mother Esaw Snipes told the News.

"She's not gone, she's brain dead", Erica's mother told the pub. She became a prominent civil rights leader and met former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2016.

Garner's family issued a statement saying a CT scan "shows Erica suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest". His apparent last words - "I can't breathe!"

Eric Garner died after being put in a banned chokehold by Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Her newborn son was named in honor of his fallen grandfather in August.

The father-of-six's death sparked widespread protests.

After a video of Garner's death went viral, activists gathered across the nation to protest police brutality.

Erica's heart attack, which led to the coma, was brought on by an asthma attack, according to NBC New York.

This was not the first heart attack that Garner experienced, says Snipes. At the time, doctors said the pregnancy had exacerbated the stress on her already enlarged heart.

"From three years ago, she never stopped", he said. Garner's condition was announced from her Twitter account. The city of NY settled with Eric Garner's estate for $5.9 million in July 2015. Her lawyer said she believed grief and emotional trauma was at least partially to blame.
