ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A husband and wife canceled a news conference in which they had planned to talk about how George Zimmerman reportedly assisted them after their SUV flipped over on a Florida highway.

Mark and Dana Gerstle had planned to speak Wednesday afternoon at the Orlando law office of Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara.

But O’Mara spokesman Shawn Vincent says they changed their minds, deciding they didn’t want to be in the spotlight.

Zimmerman and another man helped the couple and their two children out of a flipped SUV off the road near Interstate 4 last week. The family wasn’t hurt.

It was the first time Zimmerman was seen publicly since he was acquitted on all charges earlier this month in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old unarmed child.

    Send him some flowers and thank you card. It’s just amazing how Zimmerman always show up now like he is a super hero or something. Hey G. if you want to have a full good moment write me some checks to pay some bills and I will be happy to do a news conference with you and your lawyer.

  2. There is no story to tell!! Most people would stop, and help someone in need; especially in a car accident situation. The story is being media driven

    He’s still a Marked man, poor guys life will never be the same

    BTW, I hope the fans who thinks he’s innocent for killing a child keeps sending him money because he’s going to need it.

    Did Zimmerman do a news conference the same night he shot Trayvon. No he went home and slept for 40 days and 40 nights. The world had come to an end according to the Bible standards. Did he take the stand during the trial to explain himself no, so why should we listen to him now. Send him a bouquet of flowers and a thank you card and call it a day if they were sincere. It is all staged. Wow they might have a book deal also.
