Eric Garner's daughter: 'I was so distraught'

Eric Garner died after a police officer placed him in a chokehold during an incident in the New York borough of Staten Island.

Mr Garner had been accused of selling illegal cigarettes on the street. The incident was recorded by a passersby on their mobile phone and led to protests about the excessive use of force by police.
