ABC News has confirmed Erica Garner passed away today (December 30, 2017) at the age of 27. She was the daughter of Eric Garner. In 2014, the then 43-year-old Eric was placed in a chokehold by NYPD with his final words, "I can't breathe," captured on cell phone video footage. Erica turned to activism following her father's tragic death. Sadly, the 27-year-old's fight against policy brutality came to an end. On Christmas Eve (Dec. 24th), Erica suffered a massive heart attack that put her in a coma. One week later, on December 30th, Erica Garner passed away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family as the deal with this unfortunate loss.
