The daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner is close to death but still showing her fighting spirit after a massive heart attack almost a week ago, family members told the Daily News Thursday.

Erica Garner, who became a vocal member of the Black Lives Matter movement after her father was killed by a police officer three years ago, was in intensive care in a ny hospital on Thursday, after going into cardiac arrest over the weekend. As of Thursday morning, she remained on life support.

Snipes-Garner told the Daily News that Garner suffered an asthma-induced heart attack on Saturday night. She became a prominent civil rights leader and met former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2016.

Garner's family posted on her Twitter account on Monday, to thank people for their prayers and support. "Please continue to pray hard for Erica and pray for her family and kids just as much". "RIP @es_snipes. That family still needs us #Garner", Williams tweeted. From three years ago, she never stopped.

Her mother had earlier confirmed the heart attack was triggered by an asthma attack. In Staten Island, Garner's daughter led a protest in response to the grand jury's decision to not indict the police officer responsible for his death. Her mother said Erica had previously suffered a heart attack due to an enlarged heart shortly after her son, named after her father, was born in August.

After their father's death, Emerald, the third oldest, created a fund through Indiegogo to raise money for the Garner siblings. The New York Daily News first reported the news in July 2015, in an article titled, "EXCLUSIVE: DNA test shows 1-year-old girl is daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner". The chokehold Eric was put in by officer Daniel Pantaleo lasted anywhere from 15 to 19 seconds.

Garner complained repeatedly that he could not breathe.
