Family members gathered together Thursday to be with her in Brooklyn.

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

After her father's death on Staten Island in 2014, Erica Garner campaigned for police accountability, demanding justice for not only her father but also for others who were killed during encounters with police.

Over the past few days, one of Erica's workers provided updates on her health from her official Twitter account, asking her followers to pray for her.

Garner became widely known in activist circles after her father, Eric Garner, was choked to death by a NY police officer in July 2014.


After their father's death, Emerald, the third oldest, created a fund through Indiegogo to raise money for the Garner siblings. She became a prominent civil rights leader and met former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2016.

The mother of two had her second heart attack since August on Saturday, Dec. 23.

Jewel Miller, the mother of Eric Garner's youngest child, holds her 7-month-old daughter Legacy, as she attends a rally at the National Action Network in Harlem on December 6, 2014 in New York City. In the years since she has continued to advocate more broadly, against police brutality and in support of racial equality. Doctors said the pregnancy had put strain on her heart, which was found to be enlarged. Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner who died after a New York City police officer strangled him in a chokehold, asks a question of Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

She has been in a coma since then, it said.

In 2015, Garner's estate was reportedly paid $5.9 million after they filed a claim for "damages related to his death".
