    Said after hearing yells for help and heard what sounded like three pops.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 5m
    Says second yell for help "was the boy's voice."

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 5m
    Surdyka said she grabbed cell phone and started calling 911. While calling heard two yells for help.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 9m
    Said she turned off light to see who it was. Saw two people on ground, one on top of the other.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 10m
    Surdyka said she opened her upstairs window to hear a dominant, "aggressive agitated" voice speaking that wasn't normal convo.

    Surdyka is looking at photos shown by prosecutor to give jury idea of her vantage point the night of the shooting. #zimmerman


    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 10m
    Says after pop a person walked closer to her vantage point and that the person put hands to his forehead.

    Surdyka says she believes the cry for help was #TrayvonMartin. She also heard 3 shots. It was 1, evidence says. #Zimmermanon9

    Surdyka reiterates she heard two distinct cries for help. Said first one sounded more like an actual word "help".

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    Tells West of the screams that they were "A plea for someone to save them."

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 3m
    Call finished. State done with questioning. Defense attorney West is now cross examining Surdyka.

    Young blonde female alt juror in the back row appeared to wipe away a tear. Same for the only male juror remaining. Older white male alt

    Not changing her story...West asks her if she has other evidence of who the voices are. She sticks to story that the loud, confrontational voice was an older man, and the voice calling for help was a boy/Trayvon. West working hard on this.

    Agreed. She seems very credible/unbiased.

    I wonder about defense trying to counter her claim about hearing the 3 shots and use it as a means to soil her credibility.

    She repeats that high screaming voice she heard "sounded like a boy".

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 1m
    Asked if she made assumptions , Surdyka said she was only giving her best recollection.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    Surdyka says she remembers #TrayvonMartin was face down at time before/after shot. Says #Zimmerman was on top of him.

    Prosecutor objects, question was asked and answered, judge overrules, West asks again if who she thinks the voices belonged to were her assumptions.
    West asks if she had heard Trayvon's voice before and she says she heard it that night when he was yelling for help. Pros. objects again, judge sustains.

    On a break now...

    Bill Schaefer says she was a powerful witness, she maintained Trayvon was on the bottom and GZ on top, and TM was yelling for help.

    de la Rionda redirect asks her about it raining that night.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 45s
    Surdyka tells West she gave national TV interview on what she heard and saw night of shooting.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 4m
    Says the louder aggressive voice "sounded like a man's voice."

    He asks if she has ever heard the tapes of GZ and TMs voices since then and she says no. She talked to a female officer named 'Serina' (sp) that night and made a statement later with LE Serino, male investigator. Asking her about a supposed statement she made to someone that she complained he would not look out the upstairs window to see from her viewpoint. Asking her about going on TV, in disguise, to talk about case.

    Surdyka cross is done. She is off the stand. We are on a 15 min recess #Zimmerman.

    Bill Schaefer says she was traumatized during the call and believed at the time she heard 3 pops of the gun. She appeared very honest and kept to what she thought at the time.

    Jeannee Manalo has now been called to the stand. #Zimmerman #TrayvonMartin
    Retweeted by Kyle Hightower

    de la Rionda questioning her...

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 16s
    Manalo was in her living room with husband and daughter at Retreat View night of Feb 26

    She heard a 'howling' and thought it was dogs. Later heard more noises, then heard yelling for help.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 32s
    Manalo then heard addl sound that sounded closer. "Like a 'help'"

    Looked out 3 times, when heard howling sound, when heard help sound and struggling sound, when saw people on ground and saw neighbors.

    3rd time saw 2 people on ground, one on top, neighbor came out and asked if they were Ok or needed help? That's when husband called her back in and she sat back down. Then heard shot. Asks how people on ground were positioned, one on top was hitting the other. Asks who was bigger and she mentions seeing video. Defense objects, sidebar.


    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 3m
    She looked out again and the saw two people on ground. One on top of the other.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 5m
    Manalo also says help sound caught her attention. Said it sounded like a struggle. "Like rumblings."

    She did not notice size of people at the time but after seeing the news, thinks it was GZ on top. Heard help sound more than once, was screaming. What direction was the help sound, near her building. Heard the shot before she looked out the 3rd time. Told her husband and he went out.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    Attys at sidebar as defense objects

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 3m
    Manalo says person on top looked like they were hitting person on the bottom.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 1m
    Manalo says she thinks Zimmerman was person on top based on comparing their body sizes on the news.

    [Judge apparently overruled defense objection.]

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 1m
    Manalo IDs on map/photos where her house was in relation to the scene. Jury members attentive. Several pull out their notepads again.

    [Trayvon's body covered to the left outside her back door.]
