Skip to comments.EMS tapes show George Zimmerman did not sustain fatal injuries in encounter with Trayvon Martin
Posted on 03/31/2012 9:07:17 AM PDT by kristinn
On Friday, the Daily News obtained EMS documents suggesting Zimmerman, who an ex-colleague said was fired from a security job for being too aggressive, did not sustain serious injuries in the fatal encounter.
Paperwork detailing the EMS response to the shooting scene shows that a call for a second ambulance was canceled.
An audiotape containing the EMS communications, also obtained by The News on Friday, records unidentified workers discussing the scene.
Zimmermans condition is mentioned briefly in the 30-minute recording.
Do we have a second patient? a man asks.
Thats affirmative. We have a second patient, a woman replies. The second patient is not a gunshot.

Silly me! I sort of assumed that when Zimmerman walked away. I should have waited for the press to confirm it.
That explains why he’s still walking around.
Disgusting that this is what the news industry has deteriorated to.
Word “fatal” misplaced.
Really to the “let a jury sort it out” point now.
I figured that out the first time I saw Zimmerman walking in the police station.......
I guess the only way to justify self-defense is to sustain fatal injuries. LOL.
I dunno. Given the evidence, the prosecutor might Nifong herself by going ahead.
They’re implying that Zimmerman is still alive!! Like Elvis!!
Good grief. If the injuries had been “fatal” Mr. Zimmerman would be dead. Does anyone proofread these things?
If Al Sharpton, the Black Panthers, NBC and the rest of the MSM have their way, George Zimmerman will sustain fatal injuries. As soon as they tweet his current whereabouts.
That’s why the New Black Panthers want to finish the job.
Time will tell.
That headline is hysterical. Really. I see on their webpage someone TOLD them the title needed to be fixed. Yea, they are professional.
They keep posting that picture of him when he was 12. Then they post a stupid headline like that. The MSM is not only incompetent, they are evil.
The New York Daily News has had one of their reporters arrested, Matthew Lysiak, and have contacted the NYPDs PR arm, DCPI, about the incident. Lysiak also captured film of police throwing and manhandling protesters before he himself was detained.
Black & Right on Trayvon Martin (Bob Parks)
Headline and article are retarded.
And this whole time he claimed he was killed. Who knew?
I suspect the “proofreader” didn’t know the meaning of “fatal,” but had encountered the phrase “fatal injuries” in the past, and just decided that the word belonged where she put it.
An ESL sort of blunder, not understanding the bizarre and humorous implication of the misplaced modifier.
The article says: “Zimmerman, who an ex-colleague said was fired from a security job for being too aggressive, did not sustain serious injuries in the fatal encounter”
I’m glad he didn’t sustain SERIOUS injuries in the FATAL encounter. I didn’t even know Zimmerman was killed. Do these papers use junior reporters?
The truth is this article’s soul purpose was to be able to write that he was fired for being too agressive.
A second thing with that headline. EMS tapes? EMS does not tape it’s patients, that would be a violation of their privacy. EMS does not release the details of a call for the same reason.
...a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:
(1)He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony
Seriously, do these "journalists" do any research whatsoever?
trevon said he was gonna kill zimmerman after he punched him in the nose and pounded his skull into the cement. Before zimmerman was fatally injured, he was able to pull his weapon during the fight and fire a round that killed his attacker. Details at 11.
I think the intent of the headline was to undermine Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense by indicating that he did not sustain life-threatening injuries. Pure propaganda and totally irresponsibile.
There’s a Zombie take on everything these days.
“New York Daily News” Reporter Rich Shapiro Moonlights As “Armpit” Model
Daily News reporter, wound up being one of the faces - and bodies - of Dove’s new line of skin products for men.
Some words just sound appropriate to those who are ignorant of their definition. In my line of work, I've been asked numerous times to go interview somebody whose been 'electrocuted.'
Better both than either.
Inserted before the discussion of his injuries is the phrase “who was fired from a security job for being over aggressive....”
Perhaps an interesting story in itself, but a descriptive phrase of who Zimmerman is?
Zimmerman's use of deadly force prevented further such bodily injury, and prevented Martin from continuing his attack.
I'm not sure what you're saying.
I see, he should have waited until he really, really, really thought he was going to die. And then maybe he should have died instead. After all the police were called, they could have protected him after he was dead, right?
They will never suffer as much as Channon and Christian...never.
“A Miami funeral director says Trayvon Martins body showed no signs of a violent brawl.
Richard Kurtz said his examination of the slain Florida teens corpse revealed no cuts, scratches or bruises, only a gunshot wound to the chest.
Kurtzs account appears to contradict George Zimmermans claims that he shot Trayvon during a life-and-death struggle.”
Do funeral directors do autopsy reports in Floriduh?
All that proves is that Zimmerman wasn't beating up Trayvon, that is why...well...he wasn't all beat up.
fatal? What buffoons. Maybe, if Zimmerman had only waited a few more minutes of having his head slammed into the ground.
Well if Zimmermans injuries were fatal, then he would be dead, would he not?
Perhaps his injuries were fatal, if eventually the radical racist have their way. There are Wanted Dead or Alive posters out there.
. . . a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:
(1) He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself . . ..
Yep. Florida law permitted Zimmerman to use the force "to prevent" great bodily harm to himself. Before the "unh uh"s starts: (A) no, Chapter 776 doesn't define "great bodily harm,' but the appropriate legal method for Martin supporters to use before arguing that Zimmerman wasn't subjected to the possibility of it, is first to research Florida law to see if the term has been defined at law by Florida courts; and (B) yes, I know about Section 776.041.
Apart from the stupidity of the headline writer, the point that Zimmerman did not suffer serious injuries is irrelevent. The Florida law, as well as self-defense laws in states that do not have a stand your ground provision, only require that you to have a REASONABLE EXPECTATION of immediate death or grievous bodily harm.
Authors Matthew Lysiak and Rich Schapiro, who anonymous sources claimed cheated in college writing courses and were sexually inadequate drunkards, have actually obtained employment offers despite their profound lack of cognitive skills.
Just putting the emphasis where I though it was more applicable to this story.
Clearly he didn’t sustan ‘fatal’ injuries.
And who ever said he did?
Third thing - a former co-worker’s word about why Zimmerman was fired is not reliable. They should ask the boss why Z was fired.
Wish the thug had pulled his stunt in Texas, then the whole damn neighborhood could have legally shot the bastard.
