DOCTORS HAVE declared Erica Garner, daughter of the late Eric Garner, as brain dead with no chance of recovery five days after the mother of two suffered a heart attack, the Daily News reported.

Garner’s family members were reportedly being called early Thursday to Woodhull Hospital to say their goodbyes.

Erica Garner was fighting for her life following a medically induced coma after suffering a heart attack.

One of Garner’s workers who shared the news of Garner’s heart attack on Sunday updated her Twitter account Wednesday evening, announcing that Garner has suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest.

"Update: Cat scan shows Erica suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest." a worker wrote on Twitter.

"Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much."

27-year-old Garner has been an activist against police brutality and reform advocate since the passing of her father Eric Garner in 2014 - the chokehold victim killed by an NYPD officer.

His final words captured on camera, “I can’t breathe,” became a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement.
