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.
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."

He was the cause of it!
/Stuff MSNBC Will Say
This will make people hate him more.
He truly is a good man. And Lord, I am thankful that try as they might, they have not driven that from him.
Dear Lord, please keep watch.
Either Sanford FL is a ‘bermuda triangle’ of incidents waiting to happen, or Zimmerman is a magnet for bad incidents waiting to happen.
Just one more example of what a terrible dirt bag this guy is, unlike the innocent child he killed.
(I would have gone on with the sarcasm, but I found that to write any further in that line of thought would require that at least half of my brain be removed.)
Would love to hear from the truck driver.
Did the police shake his hand? Was the crash victim black? This heroic act says a lot about Zimmerman.
Once again, George emerges as one of the “good guys”. Wow, did the media and the ruling elite ever pick wrong for someone to be tagged as a monster.
There’s a lesson in this about doing the right thing in spite of rabid hatred.
Trayvon would have pulled the guy from the truck while feeling for his wallet.
A clearer example of the racial hatred that exists in his black heart could never be! (/liberal)
It was obviously a racist incident.
Betcha he was black.
Didn’t ABC ask the color of the person GZ rescued?
And not a single one of those death threats will be investigated
What color was the truck?
