Erica Garner, the daughter of slain Staten Island man Eric Garner, was reported to be brain dead by several outlets Thursday (Dec. 28). Family members were being called early Thursday to the hospital to say final goodbyes to Erica.

Garner's family posted on her Twitter account on Monday, to thank people for their prayers and support.

Davis was a longtime Atlanta news anchor, having spent 26 years at WAGA FOX5 before moving to CBS46 as a morning news anchor, where she had been working for the past year. Garner suffered a heart attack over the weekend, which had been triggered back an asthma attack. The elder Garner had been put into a chokehold by an officer with the New York Police Department and could be heard pleading, "I can't breathe!"

His words became a rallying cry of the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against police violence.

The girls were airlifted to Liverpool and St George hospitals where they remain in critical conditions. All lanes along the Princes Highway were later re-opened according to a tweet from Live Traffic NSW.

Erica's co-worker, who is leading the Twitter updates, slammed the Daily News for its first report on Erica's mental state saying she's "brain dead".

In August Garner, 27, gave birth to a boy named for her late father. Doctor's informed the family that the pregnancy caused her intense stress due to her already enlarged heart.

"I'm struggle right now from the stress of everything", she said, "because the system, it beats you down". In the years since she has continued to advocate more broadly, against police brutality and in support of racial equality. According to The NY Daily News, "Legal experts said Esaw and the biological children are entitled to portions of any cash that comes from the civil suit, but Legacy would be entitled to the bulk of the payout because she is the youngest heir".
