(WESH.COM)The family who was helped by George Zimmerman after a car accident in Sanford canceled their news conference scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
“They were just concerned that their involvement, having anything to do with George Zimmerman, may cause them blow back,” said Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara.
Zimmerman helped pull a husband, wife and two kids from their overturned SUV last Wednesday
O’Mara talked to the media Wednesday afternoon and addressed skeptics who think the rescue was a public relations stunt.
“I will acknowledge it was coincidental four or five days after the verdict, but it was not set up, or staged. Really, do you think we would’ve set up a family of four on the side (of the road), destroying an SUV?” said O’Mara.
“Those who want to believe it’s staged, they can go ahead and believe that. They can believe the earth is flat,” he said.
