Officials: Zimmerman Helped 4 Out of Wrecked SUV

  • ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman helped rescue four people from an overturned vehicle in central Florida last week, just days after he was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, officials said Monday.

    Seminole County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said in a statement that deputies responding last Wednesday afternoon to the wreck in Sanford — the Orlando suburb where Martin was shot — found Zimmerman and another man had already helped a couple and their two children out of a flipped SUV off the road near Interstate 4. They were not hurt.

    Zimmerman spoke with a deputy at the scene and then left, the sheriff’s office statement said. He did not see the crash happen.

    This is believed to be the first time Zimmerman, 29, has been seen publicly since his acquittal on a second-degree murder charge in the 17-year-old Martin’s death in February 2012. Zimmerman’s parents and his attorneys have said in interviews since the verdict that they fear for his safety because of those who may not agree with it.

    A message left at the office of Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara was not immediately returned Monday.

    Robert Zimmerman, Jr. on Monday posted on his Twitter account about his brother’s actions: “George saw a need, he acted. Our parents taught us to help, never to boast. Humility is George’s finest trait.”

    Martin’s shooting death spurred debate across the U.S. over racial profiling, self-defense and equal justice. Protesters nationwide lashed out against police in Sanford because it took 44 days for Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, to be arrested last year. Many, including Martin’s parents, said Zimmerman had racially profiled the unarmed black teen. Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, said he acted in self-defense during a fight with Martin.

    1. You must be the most gullible people on the planet. This story isn’t true. It’s a publicity stunt to raise the status of a murderer.

    2. If you think Valerie`s story is unbelievable…, last week my sisters father in law got paid $6521 just sitting there 40 hours a month from their apartment and the’re roomate’s mother-in-law`s neighbour done this for 10-months and earned more than $6521 parttime On there laptop. apply the information on this address,……….

    3. Congratulations George Zimmerman, again, for helping in yet another situation where you clearly are a hero once again; thank you George. :) And, no dope-head attacked him with a cement sidewalk and a metal can in their hoodie either.

      • Jan, don’t you read the news? Trayvon was an innocent 12 y/o riding a pony, wearing a Hollister t-shirt and eating Skittles. Come correct girl.

        • You’re right Jiggy5, was Trayvon the one with the huge candy-lollypop too. Never mind he attacked a person while being armed with a metal can in his hoodie as he used a cement sidewalk to bash a victim’s head against, repeatedly, while telling the victim he was going to kill him, never mind all those incidentals. Personally though, anyone that believe Trayvon was an innocent victim needs to have their own head bashed, repeatedly, against a cement walkway, sustain viewable injuries, and see how they feel about Trayvon’s innocence while under-going that treatment. Line ‘um up.

    4. Congratulations George Zimmerman, again, for helping in yet another situation where you clearly are a hero once again; thank you George. :)

      • Jan, might be rushing it a bit right now with all race baiters still protesting….. But, Zimmerman for president in 2016? Crazy right?

        • I’d vote George Zimmerman for president in any year. Maybe then, he can eliminate the problems caused by thugs like Trayvon Martin and prosecute parents of those child-thuggster and place the parents in prison for endangering our communities with predators like Trayvon.

    5. We must ask ourselves, would Trayvon done the same and helped “creepy ass crackers” to safety?
      Food for thought

    6. Of course this is true, if they would have been African American, he would have assumed the car was stolen and shot them.
