Erica Garner, who became an activist for police reform after her father’s words of “I can’t breathe” were used as a rallying cry for a movement, died Saturday after being in a coma for several days, according to a statement posted to her official Twitter account. She was 27. 

Garner, the oldest daughter of Eric Garner, suffered from cardiac arrest a week prior and was being hospitalized in Brooklyn, New York, her family said. 

“Erica the world loves you. I love you. I am glad you came into our lives,” family members said in a tweet. “May you find the peace in the next life that you deserved while you were here.”
