George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue someone who was trapped in an overturned truck, police said today.

Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News that Zimmerman “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” at the intersection of a Florida highway last week. Florida Highway Patrol is now handling the case, McAuliffe said.  

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route 417, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where he shot Martin.

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.

The acquittal prompted dozens of protests across the country this past weekend and his lawyers have said that Zimmerman has been the subject of death threats. His lawyers said Zimmerman has been wearing a bullet-proof vest when he ventures out in public.

Zimmerman’s parents told ABC News’ Barbara Walters they too have received death threats and have been unable to return to their home.

“We have had an enormous amount of death threats. George’s legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people have had death threats,” Zimmerman’s father, Robert Zimmerman said.”‘Everyone with Georgie’s DNA should be killed’ — just every kind of horrible thing you can imagine.”

  1. Two sides of one story …. one side provoking racism … one side trying to prevent it. Why can’t we just put this to rest? We are one people, one race … the Human race on one Planet …. EARTH, as I see it.

    Security Question: 11 + 11.

    Thank you! The Universe has spoken. So be it!!

    . . .

  2. MSM is provoking this BS. Nobody gives a damn anymore. People are trying to put food into their f#$king mouths. Sean Hannity is a commie ass wipe and so is anybody else who runs this BS story.

  3. More bullsh!t to inflame the herd…..”3 race card” Sharpton & “Suck a saw-buck” Jackson are still selling crap to the Lame Stream Media while most are just toiling to make ends meet no matter what their race.

  4. HAHAAHA!!! OMG! The media just can’t let go of this guy. Yes, let’s first cause racism and now that he is out, let’s make him redeem himself. I mean talk about playing both sides. The media can’t even decide what to do with this guy anymore. It’s hilarious.

  5. I’ve begun to question this whole zimmeran/martin shooting as another psy-op and after reading this I know it’s exactly that, a psy-op. People stop falling for this bs. Turn your tv’s off.

  6. George is rescuing an accident victim while his parents (and himself and wife) continue to hide from the public for personal safety. Criminal (deceased) Trayvon Martin’s ‘parents'(?) live out in the open basking in the limelight of affirmative action…… 🙁
