Daughter of NYPD chokehold victim dies

Daily News front page. Eric Garner death

Erica Garner died Saturday, after spending almost a week in a medically induced coma at a NY hospital.

The 27-year-old activist suffered a heart attack last week and fell into a coma before passing away on Saturday morning. The person running her popular Twitter account told Garner's 35,000 followers Wednesday that a CT scan revealed that she had suffered brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest".

The firebrand daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner died in Brooklyn Saturday morning, sources told the New York Daily News.

Garner was being arrested for selling untaxed cigarettes.

"Her heart was bigger than the world", another post on Erica's Twitter account read in part.

"They stayed with her to the end - she was a warrior to the end", Sharpton, the president of the National Action Network and an MSNBC contributor, told reporters.

Urgent need for blood donations in Charlottetown over holiday season
About 30 percent of the supply goes to cancer patients in the region, and one in seven entering the hospital need blood. He said the Red Deer blood donor clinic is closed on New Year's Day because the clinic is always closed on Monday.

Erica Garner became a voice against police brutality after his death. She cared when most people wouldn't have.

"I had the honor of getting to know Erica and I was inspired by the commitment she made working towards a more just world for her children and future generations", Sanders said in a tweet Saturday, sending his condolences. A Justice Department civil rights investigation into the case is ongoing.

In a video taken by Ramsey Orta, a bystander, Garner could be heard repeatedly telling officers, "I can't breathe". However, a day after her family was still holding on to hope that she could recover.

Massive protests were held across the country to register anger over the grand jury's decision not to charge a white police officer in the death of an unarmed black man. "She was a fighter for justice and will not be forgotten". She was particularly critical of de Blasio, noting that he defended the NYPD's decision not to release Pantaleo's disciplinary records after her father's death.

"People are dying", Garner said in the video. "She left on her own terms".

Garner had an 8-year-old daughter and a 4-month-old son, whom she named after her father.
