Despite being in hiding since his acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman has now emerged to help rescue a family of four trapped in an overturned vehicle.
According to published reports, the incident took place last week at the intersection of I-4 and Route 417 in Sanford, Fla., less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.
According to CBS Tampa, a Seminole County Sheriff’s Office report noted the family was driving in a Ford Explorer SUV when it went off the road and rolled over. A responding deputy reported that when he arrived, Zimmerman and another man helped the two parents and two children out of the vehicle.
Sanford Police Capt. Jim McAuliffe told Fox News that Zimmerman, 29, was identified by a crash victim as the man who pulled him from the mangled vehicle last week.
“George Zimmerman pulled me out,” firefighters were told by the unidentified driver, according to McAuliffe.
