Erica Garner, the daughter of police choke-hold victim Eric Garner is in critical condition with little-to-no-chance of recovery.
The 27-year-old activist and mother of 2, suffered a massive heart attack last weekend which which led doctors to medically induce her into a coma.
Update: Cat scan shows Erica suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest. Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much.— officialERICA GARNER (@es_snipes) December 28, 2017
The Internet streets are in a frenzy stating that she is brain dead, but Brooklyn journalist Shaun King took to his Twitter after a recent visit to shed some light on the truth about her condition.
I just visited the hospital to see Erica Garner and family.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) December 28, 2017
She has not passed away.
She does have limited brain function but doctors say they see some activity. Her condition is no doubt critical, but the family was encouraged this afternoon.
Do not write her obituary.
He goes on to tweet on how inappropriate various media outlets have been and how the family needs space during this troubling time.
Give this family the space and time for a miracle. That is what is needed at this point, but it is still possible.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) December 28, 2017
No family wants or needs somebody declaring their loved one is dead when they are alive.
The Steve Harvey Nation is uplifting Erica Garner and her family in our prayers.
