After death of NYC man in police custody, rallies scheduled; video shows apparent choke hold

Rallies have been planned following the in-custody death of a New York City man police say had a heart attack during a struggle with officers.

The Rev. Al Sharpton has announced two events Saturday to call attention to the death of Eric Garner.

Partial video of the Thursday incident shows an officer use what appears to be a choke hold to place the 43-year-old father and grandfather in custody.

The tactic is prohibited by the NYPD's patrol guide because it can be fatal.

The 6-foot-3-inch tall, 350-pound man is heard on the video complaining that he can't breathe.

Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) has promised a full investigation. Prosecutors officers are probing the death.

The medical examiner's office says more tests are needed to determine how exactly Garner died.
