Erica Garner, the oldest daughter of New York City resident Eric Garner who was killed by a “police chokehold” in July 2014, has been hospitalized in critical condition after suffering a heart attack.

The Daily News reports that Erica Garner, age 27, suffered cardiac arrest Saturday night December 23, 2017. Erica Garner’s mother, Esaw Snipes-Garner, says her daughter’s cardiac arrest was triggered by an asthma attack the day before Christmas Eve. Erica Garner suffered her first heart attack not long after giving birth to a baby boy in August. Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged, according to Esaw Snipes-Garner.

The woman’s father, Eric Garner, died after a police officer put Garner in a chokehold while arresting him on a Staten Island sidewalk in a commercial zone in 2014. Erica Garner became a vocal advocate against police brutality. Eric Garner, the head of a black family was put in a fatal chokehold on a Staten Island sidewalk after he was being investigated for selling cigarettes without tax stamps. His death was ruled a homicide, but the police officer, Daniel Pantaleo, who restrained Eric Garner with the chokehold, was not indicted. Several other police officers assisted the restraint of Garner. The homicide caused by Pantaleo, who is white, stirred public protests nationwide. Counter-protests were also launched in support of police, specifically for the NYPD. The US and World debate became “black discrimination by police” or “black lives matter” vs. “don’t resist arrest” (among other underlying issues) and “blue lives matter.” The Garner homicide was one of several police killings that contributed to the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

In a CNN interview, Erica Garner said that she felt that it was pride and not racism that led to the officer choking her father. “It was about the officer’s pride. It was about my father being 6’4″ and 350 pounds and he wants to be the top cop that brings a man down,” Erica Garner said.

Erica held a vigil and “die-in” on December 11, 2014, in memory of her father, on near the the Staten Island sidewalk where he died. On her Twitter account, she vowed to continue to lead protests in Staten Island twice a week, lying down in the spot where her father collapsed and died.
