Eric Garner’s daughter in coma after suffering cardiac arrest

Eric Garner?s daughter in coma after suffering cardiac arrest

The oldest daughter of Eric Garner is in a coma after suffering a heart attack on Saturday night. Her family say she was still in critical condition on Christmas Eve.
Erica Garner became a police accountability activist after her father Eric Garner was murdered by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in 2014. According to family members who spoke to newsmen on Christmas eve, Erica was on life support in ICU in a Brooklyn hospital. They added that the 27-year-old mother-of-two is unable to breathe on her own. 
Esaw Snipes-Garner, Erica’s mother, told The News her daughter’s condition was grave but the family hadn’t given up hope. She said her daughter’s cardiac arrest was brought on by an asthma attack Saturday night.
Erica is the mother of an 8-year-old girl and a 4-month-old son named after her dead father, Eric. Erica's mother said she suffered a first cardiac arrest a few months ago, after her son Eric's pregnancy. The pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which doctors discovered was enlarged — a condition Erica had not been aware of, her mother said. As for the current crisis, Snipes-Garner said it’s a waiting game for the mother of two, filled with family prayers and loving support.
"She’s not doing well and we’re praying," Snipes-Garner told The News.
Erica's foster mother, Tanya Goode, left the Brooklyn hospital in tears late on Christmas Eve, flanked by two of Erica's brothers and a sister-in-law.
"I was here last night and I’ve been here all day today," Goode told The News. "Erica is on life support. She can’t breathe on her own. So, she’s not doing well."
Erica’s sister, Emerald Snipes, wrote on Facebook on Sunday: "My sister had another heart attack last night and she’s in critical condition. I just left the hospital and it’s not looking good. ... I pray she makes it; she has two little ones to live for."
