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?
Yes, it was a grave miscalculation on their part and to recover somewhat from their gaffe, they had to create a new classification of human beings, the "white hispanic." They really picked the wrong incident to promote their leftist, anti-gun, pro-race-war agenda.
James Gordon Jr.: Batman? Batman! Why’s he running dad?
Lt. James Gordon: Because we have to chase him.
Cop: Okay we’re going in! Go, go! Move!
James Gordon Jr.: He didn’t do anything wrong.
Lt. James Gordon: Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.
Now this is an interesting twist.
Zimmerman just does not make a very good bad guy at all.
Nope. Sanford is just Sanford. Which is enough. A lot of central Florida is also there or getting there. Heck, a lot of the country.
He probably only saved the guy because he was white. If he’d been black, Zimmerman would have shot him. /sarc
I’m letting the DOJ email tip line know right away. This could be key to their investigation!
I’d be very interested in knowing whether the truck driver was black. If so, the “media” will claim Zimmerman caused the accident because he likes to profile blacks.
You could go years before having to make the decision whether to intervene in such an accident. No coincidence IMO. God will allow those to see what they need to see. /hardendhearts
At a minimum, however, his wife still has the trumped up charge of perjury to deal with.
I wonder if the crash victim was an anti-Zimmerman protester who took one look at Zimmerman and thought he’d died and gone to hell. LOL
Good thing Holder held his gun. /sarc
One of the interesting things about the Duke Lacrosse case was that those kids really were the children of the rich, and the **** really did come down on the DA’s head and on Duke University like a ton of bricks.
While I'm not surprised the level of black racism and hatred has reached this point, I am surprised ABC is reporting it. Didn't these reporters get the memo? ALL black on white violent incidents are to be ignored.
George Zimmerman, unlike those who , both on and off this forum, is a decent human being. For those after his scalp, I can’t say the same. I will go to my grave regretting my vote for Rick Scott and Pam Bondi.
“”God will allow those to see what they need to see.””
Beautifully said, FRiend.
Thank You Lord.
Tagged as a monster? Kind of like what they did to Sarah Palin.
It is the fifth-column media who are the evil monsters, and among them are the talking heads of ABCCBSNBCCNN... (Yeah, you too, Lester!)
...his wife still has the trumped up charge of perjury to deal with.
Misdemeanor or felony? Misdemeanor no problem, felony you need the court's blessing...so to speak.
What made the difference was Duke University - and specifically the alumni letting Duke know they were not happy.
It's enough for the left if the truck was black.... clearly, GZ is the guy to profile the truck. And, if the truck had a hoodie...
I'm thinking George might want to consider another 'neighborhood' to live in. I can't believe he was not a thousand miles away by now. Wow!
What an A-hole.... He SHOULDA just stayed in his truck! /s
See how Providence intervenes?
If Zimmerman hadn’t shot Martin that night, he wouldn’t be in hiding now, which means he likely wouldn’t have been on the scene for that truck driver.. which means the driver might’ve died.
So.. Trayvon Martin’s death served a purpose.
Maybe DoJ should investigate whether GZ made the truck roll over....
In other news:
NAACP Seminole chapter to hold town hall meeting on Zimmerman verdict tonight
The Seminole County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will hold a town hall meeting tonight at Allen Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Sanford to give the public an opportunity to discuss the George Zimmerman trial and verdict.
Turner Clayton, president of the NAACP’s Seminole County branch, said the verdict was not fair and definitely not impartial.
The NAACP branch is calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to file civil-rights charges against Zimmerman.
Tonight’s town hall meeting will begin at 7 at 1203 Olive Ave. in Sanford’s historic Goldsboro community.
I wondered the same thing.... If he was, we'll NEVER hear about it.
~I don't always pull victims from overturned vehicles the week after being acquitted for murder in a nationally televised case. But when I do...~
This happened last week. Amazing that it wasn’t reported/admitted until now.
LOL what if it’s a black guy he pulled out, the blast zone at MSNBC will cover three states
