Witness to Scuffle Thought Zimmerman Was Calling for Help

Good said he went outside when he heard the tussle. He saw someone dressed in dark clothing on top of someone else in light or red clothing.

Martin wore a gray hoodie, Zimmerman a red jacket.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara asked Good to explain what he saw. Good said the teen straddled Zimmerman.

"The person who you now know to be Trayvon Martin was on top, correct?" O'Mara asked.

"Correct," Good said. 

O'Mara asked if Travyon was the one "raining blows down on the person on the bottom," George Zimmerman.

"That's what it looked like," Good replied.

Good said he believes it was Zimmerman crying for help because of the position of the two people and the way the sound carried.

Prosecutors say Zimmerman profiled, followed and murdered Martin, but Zimmerman says he was attacked and fired in self defense.
