So not only did George Zimmerman tutor black youths, have black family members, took a black women to the Prom, helped protect his neighborhood from potential robberies, campaigned and voted for Obama, protested a White Police lieutenant who beat a black homeless man, the “Wanna-be cop” now comes out of hiding to help rescue a family trapped in an SUV.
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.
Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said.

George Zimmerman helped rescue family from overturned SUV, cops say
The Sheriff’s Office has not released any information on the family, or the other man.
The crash came days after six Seminole County residents returned a not-guilty verdict in Zimmerman’s high-profile murder trial. Prosecutors accused Zimmerman of profiling, pursuing and killing Trayvon in his Sanford townhouse community Feb. 26, 2012.
Zimmerman, then a Neighborhood Watch volunteer for the Retreat at Twin Lakes, said he shot Trayvon in self-defense after the unarmed Miami Gardens teen attacked him.
Zimmerman remains in hiding, as he had been while awaiting trial.
