The night Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman has now been recreated by Next Media Animations, a Taiwanese media company. The company is known for producing video recreations of international news stories, including the Tiger Woods cheating scandal and SUV crash. Huffington Post reports:
The animated reconstruction includes excerpts from audio 911 recordings made the night of the shooting.
While the reconstruction is based only on the company’s depiction of the events that night, it does, perhaps for the first time, put in live motion what could have happened on Feb. 26, the night Martin was killed.
Martin, 17, was killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain who said he shot the teen in self-defense. Just minutes before the shooting, Zimmerman called 911 and reported Martin as a “suspicious” person. The dispatcher told Zimmerman to stand down and to wait for police officers to arrive. But Zimmerman followed Martin, confronting him and eventually shooting him in the chest with a 9mm handgun. The details of the night vary widely, depending on who is recalling them.
