Activist Erica Garner, whose father's death helped galvanize an emotional discussion about race and policing, died on Saturday, New York's WABC reported.

Erica Garner has been hospitalized in Brooklyn since Saturday.

Since Garner went into a coma, friends and family have taken to using her Twitter account to deliver updates on her medical condition. The person running her popular Twitter account told Garner's 35,000 followers Wednesday that a CT scan revealed that she had suffered brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest". Her heart was greater than the world.

Garner became a civil rights activist after video of her father's chokehold death at the hands of a NY police officer went viral and his final words "I can't breathe" became a rallying cry for police reform activists. The elder Garner, 43, died after being put in a chokehold by NY police officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Her father's final words, "I can't breathe", were captured on cellphone video and became a rallying cry for protesters against police brutality.

Erica Garner turned into an unmistakable dissident in the wake of her dad's passing, pushing for political change and social equity comprehensively lined up with the Black Lives Matter development. His mother, Venida Browder, suffered a heart attack 16 months after his death.

"She was a warrior, she was a fighter and we didn't pull the plug on her", said Esaw Snipes, Garner's mother. "I will always march".
