Sister of Eric Garner, Erika, dies after heart attack

Dec 31, 2017, 01:06

Friends and activists are visiting the NY hospital where Black Lives Matter icon Eric Garner's eldest daughter is in grave condition after a heart attack. She suffered a heart attack shortly after the delivery. The city later settled with Garner's family for $5.9 million, WABC reported.

Hearts are heavy today as reports poured in that activist and eldest daughter of slain Staten Island man Eric Garner, Erica Garner, has died.

Garner became a vocal advocate against police brutality following the death of her father, Eric Garner, a Black Lives Matter icon.

Eric Garner died on Staten Island in July 2014, after being put in a chokehold by police officer Daniel Pantaleo.

His last words, as he was being pinned to the ground, were, "I can't breathe".

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

Days before the anniversary of her father's death in 2015, she led a march through the streets of St. George and Tompkinsville, as part of a week-long series of events planned to honor his legacy and raise awareness of what she believed was a trend of police brutality in the country.

"She was a fighter, she was a warrior and she lost the battle", Snipes said of her daughter.

"I cautioned her ordinary, you need to back off, you need to unwind and back off", she said.

Accumulate, 27, experienced the impacts of an expanded heart in the wake of bringing forth her child three months prior, Snipes said. In 2016, she campaigned on behalf of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent, for president.

His demise was ruled a murder, yet an unbelievable jury chose not to arraign Pantaleo on criminal allegations. "I'm standing up, me being his girl", she said in the promotion. She also appeared in a campaign commercial for Sen.

Garner urged unity in the social justice movement and sought to mend fissures and conflicts within it.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called Garner's death a "horrible tragedy".

Some activists suggested the NYPD and its systems of power bore some responsibility for her death. "She left on her own terms". "We didn't deserve her", the team member wrote on Saturday. "Her heart was assaulted by a framework that would gag her father and not consider responsible those that did it".

"Many will say that Erica died of a heart attack, but that's only partially true because her heart was already broken when she couldn't get justice for her father", he said.
