Dispatch recordings from Fla. teen shooting released

Initially report two patients, then second ambulance cancelled

By Sean Lavin

SANFORD, Fla. — A Trayvon Martin family spokesperson says information within the newly released fire rescue dispatch recordings from the night George Zimmerman shot and killed Martin is just another reason why Zimmerman should be arrested.

The recordings, which were first obtained by the New York Daily News and then shared by the newspaper with Local 6, detail communication from emergency medical responders on the night of Martin's death.

In the recordings, you can hear rescue workers talking about Zimmerman, just minutes after his family says Martin repeatedly pounded his head into a sidewalk.

"Do they have a second patient?" a person says on the recording. "That's affirmative, there's a second patient."
