George Zimmerman, who has not been seen publicly since being acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin earlier this month, surfaced last week to rescue an unidentified driver trapped in an overturned truck in Florida, police said Monday.
Sanford Police Department 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.
The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and Route 417 in Sanford, police said.
Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder on July 13 in the killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.
Zimmerman's parents, meanwhile, have told ABC News tha 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."
Sounds like a story to get people on Zimmerman's side....anyway, the death threats are a shame and makes those people giving the threats worse than what they think Zimmerman is.
