George Zimmerman Emerged From Hiding; Rescues Family From Overturned Truck

Source: Matt Gutman / ABC News

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of a family of four — two parents and two children — trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

By the time police arrived, two people – including Zimmerman – had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff’s office said. No one was reported to be injured.

    LMAO yeah right!!!!!

  • truthwins

    So what, he just all of a sudden been there. That murderer neber left from were he resides. Get out of here. HE IS STILL A MURDERER NO MATTER HOW YOU SLICE IT….


    This is one injured…Sounds staged to me

  • Adrienne

    Sounds exaggerated in my opinion AND I would not believe anything that comes from the police in FL!!!!!

  • TVP

    So let me make sure I understand this correctly… he’s got enough strength to help rescue a family from an overturned vehicle, but not enough energy to get a 154 lb. teenager off him without shooting him in the heart at point blank range with a hollow point bullet??

    Oh. Ok.

    • Tamara McCutcheon

      THANK YOU!

    • Jay Williams

      EXACTLY!!!!!! Took the words right out my mouth. This smells of high profile publicity tactics to keep him from getting popped on the streets. GZ you can never be a hero bruh!

    • mnyama

      Yeah..he’s weak and Trayvon was some sort of hoodie wearing monster and he was soooo afraid. His strength – and courage – seems to have returned since the trial. Still won’t work. He can never redeem himself in my eyes.

  • Laverne

    Why do I feel like this is part of a reputation “clean-up” campaign for Zimmerman? Just seems tooo easy.

    • sistaB

      Only a stupid person or one of his depraved supporters would believe this to be true. This is all a PR stunt! The “accident” was staged and once again his Stanford cop friends played a role in it. Look at the perfect timing! He’s under siege & in hiding but miraculously appeared at an accident scene to do some good. A staged accident can’t clean up his evil image.

  • jollyf

    Yeah, no injuries, I bet. Well Zimmerman, you finally came outside to rescue someone; how long did it take you to get to the staged scene? how many of them were your friends helping you look like a person helping society?

    Crawl back into your hole; the one thing I have learned in my 50 years hear on earth is that the media does all it can to sway the minds of the masses; it is not working for me.

    Simply amazing, the same way you happened to be out on that rainy February night by chance, right? Wrong.

  • Tina

    Really – ???? Now he is a savior. He can’t repair his past by doing a good deed. He needs to admit his wrong, then, maybe, then, someone will accept his good deed.

    • ck

      Zimmerman doesn’ t have to admit he’s wrong because he’s not. Trayvon was the aggressor who attacked George and Trayvon was the racist “creepy white cracker”. Until people can admit that or show evidence otherwise I hope George doesn’t help anyone else because that family was probably BLACK!!~!

  • Unbelievable

    Yeah right! This MURDERER has been in hiding since the verdict. He just happened to come out of hiding and pop up at an accident scene and save a family!!! lol Who is he, Superman? Give me a f—ing break!!!!!

    • ck

      Bet the family he saved was black and that is why they don’t want their name or picture out there. How pathetic would that look if even after all the blacks have done and are doing to him that he would still help them. George you’re nuts, I would have kept driving.

    • mnyama

      I agree. PROPAGANDA. . .

  • Big Poppa

    He just so happened to be there. Maybe he was following them.

  • Bodhisatva

    Huh! What are you all talking about? I was molested by a black man when I was 5, my sister violently raped by a black man, our house was intruded on by 2 black men and they broke a chair over my other sister’s head, my brother walked down a street where some black men were and they beat him up so bad the emergency team thought he would die, and I still walked past a black man a train exit stairway and he grabbed my breasts. Yet, I still do not think I have the right to bash someone’s head of any color into cement with my fist or to gang up him so his life is ruined. Have you read the facts of this case? I voted for Obama and signed a petition for Trayvon. When I read the facts, I realized I want my vote and my petition signature back


      Yes, I read the facts, Trayvon had no DNA of George on his hands!!!! Fact!!! DNA don’t lie, and rain do not remove it from a body!!!! facts.

      • ck

        Fact is Trayvon was the aggressor and the racist (Creepy White Cracker). Trayvon also had the “civil right” to go home, but chose to attack Zimmerman instead. That’s the evidence. If you have evidence to prove otherwise bring it on.

    • starr

      you did’nt read no damn FACTS, you read what came out of GZ mouth which i doubt if ANY of is the truth!

  • Confused

    Zimmerman must have used some of that corporate support money to hire a PR team. Sounds like a stunt to polish an image to me.

    • ck

      Your name suits you. All the PR people are on the Martin payroll.

    • mnyama

      Yep . . . as if it will help. Good for the family now let him go back to his cave.

  • bravewarrior7778


    • ck

      You are a racist and everything you wrote was junk. If you don’t get your way its not fair. Wake up buttercup, Trayvon was the aggressor and the racist. If you have evidence to prove otherwise step up with it. Any your little logo, God is humiliated by your behavior and brave warriors don’t hide on comment sites, which also shows that you don’t want the truth you just want division and hatred. Take it somewhere else.

      • bravewarrior7778

        by the way my name is not buttercup first of all your name makes my case hands down case closed!!

    • mnyama

      I agree . . .with at big fat “SO WHAT?” Good for the family but SOWHAT for GZ? He is still a murderer.

  • ck

    Since this accident occurred on a public road I would like to know who the people were in the car that Zimmerman assisted. If its public record we have a right to know. Bet it was a black family and don’t want to admit that they appreciated George’s help. Next time George, don’t get out of the car. After how they have treated you “an innocent man”, I say keep driving and let them take care of themselves.

  • Jay Williams

    Come on are you serious? What was he doing… following them to? Kinda suspect that a truck flipped over to the point where a family was trapped and couldn’t escape yet there were no injuries. Guess GZ didn’t have enough money to pay off the hospital to falsify some injuries. Good try tho bruh. You could save a bus load of families and you still wouldn’t begin to scratch the surface of penance.

  • mnyama

    Sooooo…what does he want? A cookie? Is this supposed to be some sort of redemption? He got his strength and courage back mighty quickly now that he’s out of jail. He was afraid of a supposedly suspicious hoodie wearing teenager yet he can swoop out of hiding and rescue a family from an overturned vehicle. Did he have his gun drawn just in case it was a car full of suspicious Black folks? Puleeeze. His PR firm has to do much better than that.

  • joyce

    Roland the family in the SUV handles the accounts of the HOA/Condos where zimmerman resides. Check out Mark Gerstle RESEARCH, READ, then RESPOND. Zimmerman’s father is a powerful judge in this area and has covered this man’s bad behavior for years. This accident was staged.

    • Martin

      AMAZING…Simply AMAZING! I saw the movie ‘Superman’, but I thought Christopher Reeves played that role, not George Zimmerman? Zimmerman comes out of hiding, throwing his safety to the wind, just in time to rescue a family from an overturned SUV. And he made sure NO ONE WAS HURT! I’m crying as I feel the compassion and bravery that Zimmerman has for his fellow man. He deserves sainthood. WHAT A CROCK OF BS!! What Zimmerman really deserves is the electric chair.

    A person’s character will always shine through, whether good or bad, regardless of what people may say about them. The truth, like cream, always rises to the top. It’s OK to be angry about centuries old racism that’s never been addressed. However, it’s not OK to put all the blame on one person or one situation because you find it convenient.
