George Zimmerman helps family out of overturned SUV
SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman has emerged from hiding to help a family get out of an overturned vehicle in Florida, four days after he was acquitted of murder, authorities said.
Zimmerman and another man helped four people get out of an SUV that had overturned Wednesday evening in Sanford — the same community where the former neighborhood watch volunteer fatally shot teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012 — Seminole County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Heather Smith said.
Authorities were called after the SUV went off the road and rolled over in the area of Interstate 4 and State Road 46. By the time a deputy arrived, Zimmerman and another man already had helped the two adults and two children out of the vehicle, Smith said.
Zimmerman did not witness the crash, and he left after making contact with the deputy, Smith said. No injuries were reported.
Zimmerman has been out of the public eye since a jury acquitted him of second degree murder on July 13.
