Zimmerman helped family, sheriff says

George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder this month in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, had a new run-in with Seminole County, Fla., authorities: as a good Samaritan.

Zimmerman helped pull a family of four out of a Ford Explorer that had rolled over in Sanford last Wednesday, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. None of the SUV’s occupants, two parents and two children, was injured.

The responding deputy “reported that when he arrived, two men – one of whom was George Zimmerman – had already helped assist the family by getting them out of the overturned vehicle,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement Monday. “Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy.”
