    Family members tell the Daily News that 27-year-old Erica Garner went into cardiac arrest Saturday night.

    The woman’s father, Eric Garner, died after a white police officer put Garner, who is black, in a chokehold while arresting him on Staten Island in 2014. Erica Garner became a vocal advocate against police brutality.

    Her mother, Esaw Snipes-Garner, says her daughter’s cardiac arrest was triggered by an asthma attack.

    Snipes-Garner says her daughter suffered her first heart attack not long after giving birth to a baby boy in August. Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged.

    1. Can our liberal, OCD, fake news media find a way to blame this on law enforcement? If not, this story is meaningful to the family and close friends, but insignificant to the public. If she had experienced a stomach ache, would the media report that, too?

      • Similar to the fact that almost all news about anyone but a select few are most pertinent to their close families and friends.
        Perhaps there are other reasons you particularly don’t care about this person.

        • I don’t know anything about this person, so there is no particular reason to care or not to care. I just wonder why these stories are news for the public. If this person was a celebrity, perhaps. Otherwise, I suspect there is a subliminal message here, and it falls in line with the narratives of the MSM. That is reprehensible.
