Erica's father, Eric Garner, made headlines in 2014 when he died after being put in a chokehold by an NYPD officer, Daniel Pantaleo, while he was arresting getting arrested.

Erica, 27, and a mother of two, is unable to breathe on her own, the family said.

Erica's foster mother, Tanya Goode, told the Daily News while leaving the Brooklyn hospital: "Erica is on life support". Eric Garner, the black man whose plea "I can't breathe" to the white NYPD officer who choked him set off waves of protests against racially motivated police violence across the country, suffered from acute asthma, according to a prior report by the Times. The NYPD prohibits use of chokeholds, but in December 2014, the grand jury decided not to indict Pantaleo, which sparked an outcry of protests against police brutality.

A message sent Christmas morning from Garner's Twitter account said her family asks "that you take this holiday to enjoy your loved ones and for self care".

"(She) is still with us. She gave birth to a boy four months ago and had her first heart attack a short time after that, Snipes said. "So, she's not doing well".

Her mother, Esaw Snipes-Garner, told the News that her daughter's condition was grave. She expressed concerns about Erica's health. Ms. Garner was in a medically induced coma on Monday after suffering a heart attack, Ms. Snipes said.
