There seems to be confusion on the condition of Erica Garner, following a heart attack earlier this week.
On Wednesday night, a message was sent out from Garner's twitter, saying she is suffering major brain damage from a lack of oxygen during the heart attack.
Hours later, a tweet from Brooklyn City Councilman Jumaane Williams indicated that Erica Garner had died.
Manhattan City Councilman Corey Johnson also sent his condolences when he retweeted the initial message from Garner's twitter.
In a response to Williams' tweet, the Garner family simply said "no."
The account later went on to say that Williams did not receive the news of Garner's health from the family.
Johnson and Williams' tweets have since been removed.
In a statement released Thursday morning, Williams says he "hastily tweeted out erroneous information." He went on to say he "reacted immediately and emotionally" and apologized for any additional strain it may have put on the family.
Garner's father died in 2014 after an NYPD officer placed him in a chokehold.
He had been stopped for selling loose cigarettes.
The incident was caught on video, with Garner repeatedly saying, "I can't breathe."
Following her father’s death, Erica became an advocate against police brutality.
