NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)Eric Garner‘s oldest daughter Erica is critically ill.

Her family says the 27-year-old mother of two suffered a heart attack Saturday night.

Erica Garner’s mother Esaw told the Daily News the heart attack was brought on by an asthma attack Christmas Eve.

Erica Garner became a police reform advocate after her father Eric Garner died during an arrest three years ago.

She’s reportedly on life support.

“The Garner/Snipes family wants to thank you all for your prayers and support,” the family wrote on her official Twitter account.

  1. My prayers for her recovery going up now.

    Hey, didn’t her dad have asthma and heart problems too? She’s younger and (hopefully) stronger, so I feel more hope that she’ll be better soon.
