Family Cancels press conference due to fear of retaliation. This probably will add to the Leftest conspiracy theorists who are calling the SUV Rescue by George Zimmerman a PR Stunt or a hoax.
A family authorities say George Zimmerman helped rescue from a rollover SUV crash in Seminole County last week will not hold a press conference today, as had been expected.
Mark Gerstle, who was driving the Ford Explorer when it overturned about 5:45 p.m. July 17, had planned to speak to reporters at Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara‘s downtown Orlando law offices this afternoon, but changed his mind because he and his family became “nervous about being in the spotlight,” an O’Mara spokesman said.
According to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, Gerstle’s wife and two children were in the vehicle when he lost control on a State Road 417 off-ramp, traveling off the road and flipping on its side.
