Just days after suffering from a heart attack, new reports reveal that Erica Garner, the daughter of NYPD chokehold victim Eric Garner, has sustained “major brain damage” from the attack.
Last weekend, the 27-year-old activist went into cardiac arrest after the heart attack which was triggered by an asthma attack, family members say. However, the devastating update came from the family around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, revealing the details of the CAT scan.
“Erica suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest,” the tweet read. “Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much.”
Garner has been in a medically-induced coma since Saturday’s incident, however, Erica’s mother, Esaw Snipes-Garner has maintained that her daughter is “fighting.”
