Doctors say Erica Garner will not recover, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on February 16, 2016, during a town hall at the University of SC in Columbia, S.C. The oldest daughter of NY police chokehold victim Eric Garner has suffered "major brain damage" following a heart attack, her family says. Family members gathered together Thursday to be with her in Brooklyn.

Garner's family issued a statement saying a CT scan "shows Erica suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest". Garner suffered a heart attack over the weekend, which had been triggered back an asthma attack.

Esaw Snipes, wife of Eric Garner- who was killed by a police chokehold - cries while speaking on a panel titled "The Impact of Police Brutality - The Victims Speak" at the National Action Network (NAN) national convention on April 8, 2015 in New York City.

Erica has since become a leading activist for Black Lives Matter and has gained a loyal following and respect for her movement.

"She's not gone, she's brain dead", Garner's heartbroken mother explained early Thursday. In the years since she has continued to advocate more broadly, against police brutality and in support of racial equality.

Coalition has no plans to target IS in Syrian government-controlled areas
Felix Gedney, deputy commander of strategy and support for the coalition, told reporters during a Pentagon briefing on Wednesday. USA troops have served as advisers on the ground with Iraqi government forces and with Kurdish and Arab groups in Syria.


In August Garner, 27, gave birth to a boy named for her late father.

Doctors said at the time the pregnancy had taken a toll on her body and found that her heart was enlarged.

Erica Garner became a vocal critic of the NYPD, a frequent speaker and an organizer of rallies, marches and other forms of direct action.

"I'm struggle right now from the stress of everything", she said, "because the system, it beats you down".

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