George Zimmerman Rescues Man from Mangled Truck after Crash
According to ABC News on Monday, George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue someone trapped in an overturned truck.
Sanford Police say that George Zimmerman, 29, helped pull an individual from a truck that had rolled over in an intersection of I-4 and route 417 in Florida last week. The crash site was less than a mile from where Zimmerman has shot Martin in February of 2012 in self-defense.
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.
The identity of the man in the truck and extent of his injuries was not known.
Zimmerman's parents, meanwhile, have told ABC News that they have received death threats and have been unable to return to their home following the verdict
"We have had an enormous amount of death threats,” Robert Zimmerman said. “George's legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people have had death threats … ‘Everyone with Georgie's DNA should be killed' -- just every kind of horrible thing you can imagine."
