On Saturday, the world lost Erica Garner, who became one of the leading voices in the Black Lives Matter movement after her father, Eric, was killed during a struggle with police.

"She passed away this morning", a tweet posted to Erica Garner's Twitter account by family members Saturday morning read. "We didn't deserve her", read messages from Garner's Twitter, now operated by a family member.

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

Snipes said Garner had a heart attack after an asthma episode and was placed in a medically induced coma.

The elder Garner, 43, died after being put in a chokehold by NY police officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Garner was hospitalized in critical condition earlier this month after suffering a heart attack.

She had been hospitalized in Brooklyn, New York, after she reportedly went into cardiac arrest nearly a week ago. He added that her family did not remove her from life support.

In December 2014, a grand jury decided not to indict the New York Police Department officer who put Eric Garner in a chokehold, Daniel Pantaleo. "What do you want from marching?' He was my father", Garner told NBC News in 2015. She suffered a heart attack shortly after the delivery. Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged.

Erica Garner became an outspoken activist.

Tributes have been pouring in from fellow human rights activists, with many leaving the message "Rest in power" to honor the political activist and mother of two.
