Less than a mile from where George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Seminole County police department have confirmed Zimmerman came to the rescue, and pulled a family of four out of their SUV after it was involved in a fiery crash.
The accident, involving a Ford Explorer, happened when the SUV flipped over and rolled off the road, trapping the two parents and two children inside the vehicle.
Though Zimmerman has been in relative hiding ever since he was handed a not guilty verdict nine days ago, the world’s most controversial self-appointed neighborhood watchman jumped in to lend a hand witnesses at the scene report.
The father, who’d been helped by Zimmerman and another man, said he recognized his face, telling firefighters on the scene, “George Zimmerman pulled me out,” according to FOX news.
No injuries were reported.
It’s the first known sighting of Zimmerman since he left the courtroom following his acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin.
Zimmerman, 29, shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. The jury determined that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense.
