The 27-year-old daughter of NYPD chokehold victim Eric Garner has been declared brain dead and has no hope for recovery, reports the Daily News.

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

Garner became widely known in activist circles after her father, Eric Garner, was choked to death by a NY police officer in July 2014. She became a prominent civil rights leader and met former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2016. "Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much".

Family members have now been urged to come to Woodhull Hospital to say goodbye to Garner.

Garner has been in a coma since Saturday, when an asthma attack triggered a heart attack.

'As we sent prayers up.so sorry to hear the news. "RIP @es_snipes. That family still needs us #Garner", Williams tweeted. In Staten Island, Garner's daughter led a protest in response to the grand jury's decision to not indict the police officer responsible for his death. The first came following the birth of her second child and at the time, the family had disclosed Garner had an enlarged heart.

After their father's death, Emerald, the third oldest, created a fund through Indiegogo to raise money for the Garner siblings.

Eric Garner died after being put in a banned chokehold by Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo. In the years since she has continued to advocate more broadly, against police brutality and in support of racial equality.

Protesters converged on busy streets, blocking traffic, and staged die-ins, carried mock coffins and chanted "I can't breathe" - Garner's last words before he died.

The city medical examiner ruled Garner's death a homicide, with asthma and obesity as contributing factors.
