By Christina Carrega and Thomas Tracy,

Doctors have listed the daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner as brain dead with no chance of recovery — five days after the mother of two suffered a massive heart attack, the Daily News has learned.

Family members were being called early Thursday to Woodhull Hospital to say final goodbyes to Erica Garner, who became an outspoken critic of police brutality after her father’s death in 2014.

The 27-year-old firebrand remained on life support Thursday morning, her mother Esaw Snipes said.
