The news conference today was supposed to have taken place at O'Mara's office????

"Earlier, the husband and wife who were involved in the accident canceled a Wednesday news conference at O'Mara's law office. Mark and Dana Gerstle had planned to talk about Zimmerman's assistance.

O'Mara told Blitzer that they changed their minds, deciding they didn't want to be in the spotlight. After discussing the situation with family and friends, O'Mara said they realized that being connected to Zimmerman right now could be toxic."

This report says it was O'Mara who cancelled it......

"O'Mara, underscoring the amount of hate directed toward
Zimmerman, spoke after canceling a planned news conference with
the family, where he said Zimmerman was due to be recognized as
a "Good Samaritan."

"O'Mara urged reporters to give the Gerstle family privacy."

After he arranges a news conference at his office, knowing the family was not seeking publicity?

What an utter idiot!

I would love for you to say who you really are. You have denied being Brad from the start, so Kudos for that.

You have some interesting points of view!

This forum is so much fun when things are rolling along with some sort of trial for a killer is going on.

We could talk about Family and friends and all sorts of things.

I say, lets talk "All the threads" become as one.

Just talk without all the rhetoric would be nice.

Just tell the truth here.

This thread rocks.

If you are going to be mean then go elsewhere in a hurry.

Be honest Gloomy Darwood. You are not living in the Tropics right? Sorry for the misspelling of your hat trick.

If one person admits who they are then others will follow suit =Uniting in a P loom of smoke, wondering what happened?

How was it confirmed the Gerstle family was involved in the roll-over?

The police file was not released.

The Seminole County Sheriff Office Spokeperson never mentioned their names.

Anyone know the answer?

"Sanford Police Department Capt Jim McAuliffe said that Zimmerman was identified by one of the crash victims as the man who pulled him and his family from the mangled blue Ford Explorer.

'George Zimmerman pulled me out,' firefighters were told by the unidentified driver, according to McAuliffe.

The responding deputy said that when he arrived at the intersection of I-4 and Route 46, two men - one of whom was Zimmerman - had already gotten the Gerstle family, which included their two children, out of the overturned vehicle."

A day later, Daily Mail again....the "unidentifed drive" is gone.....Mark Gerstle said the words.

"Mark Gerstle, a 52 year old pharmacist, instantly recognized Zimmerman when he pulled him from the driver's seat of his overturned vehicle.

He told firefighters:'George Zimmerman pulled me out.'

Furthermore, it's not realistic that an able bodied male requires that he be "pulled out" of a vehicle, but he was not injured.

The Explorer was on it's side genius, there are these things called doors which must be opened and then held open while the driver and passengers carefully crawl out, if they're able, and then find their way down to the ground.

FYI Zimmerman is about as tall as an Explorer is wide, the exercise required a bit of effort and he probably got dirty.

George Zimmerman Crash Heroics 'Not Staged'
A public thank you from the family saved from their flipped car by Trayvon Martin's killer is shelved, amid conspiracy theories.

George Zimmerman's lawyer has brushed aside suggestions that his client's actions in helping save a family from a car wreck were staged.

Mark O'Mara said several officials and witnesses have confirmed the account of the former neighbourhood watch volunteer, who was recently acquitted of charges over the death of teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.

"The same people who refuse to accept the jury's verdict, just want to be angry, just want to hate George Zimmerman, are still going to," Mr O'Mara told CNN.

"Even if we had a videotape of the accident, they would still say it was made up. So you can't really respond to people who just don't want to listen to the truth."

Earlier on Wednesday, the husband and wife who were involved in the accident cancelled a planned news conference.

Mark and Dana Gerstle had wanted to talk about Mr Zimmerman's heroics when their car flipped over last week.

"They wanted to thank him publicly," the lawyer said. "They thought that they could not, for the possibility of blowback against them."

Notice two words - TOXIC and BLOWBACK prevail in this story.

You're missing the point. The Daily Mail does not disclose who they got the story from. It was not authorities because the original story quotes "an unidentified driver". It was not Gerstle because he refused to talk to the media, and it certainly wasn't George Zimmerman.

Someone obviously responded to the Daily Mail's ask for an anonymous......the Gerstle involvement essentially put an end to it. Through O'Mara's mouth they thanked GZ, you can all go home now....we don't want the blowback from toxic chemicals to taint us.

But use your head! Two adults, two children involved in a highway roll-over crash do not walk away from the scene.....they'd at least be taken to hospital for observation of internal injuries. There's obviously more to this story than meets the eye because it does not make sense.
