Can anything else happen to make the vilification of George Zimmerman seem any more pathetic?

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.

Update: It looks like the initial story above was slightly inaccurate. It wasn’t an individual, but a family of four that he helped save.

2nd Update: And he put out the fire. I swear, in the next update, we’re going to find out he delivered a baby as well.

3rd Update: Added the picture I was sent last night.

    The cynic in me hopes that the victim in the car crash was not black, lest the race-baiters accuse GZ of deliberately running him/her off the road.

  2. Wild Deuce says:

    Comment on a forum had it right … NBC will edit the tape and run it backwards to show that Zimmerman flipped over the vehicle and threw the man underneath.

    Looks like a clear case of “profiling” and then stalking by Mr. Zimmerman.

    I hear he actually saved a bunch of animals from a burning building too. Here’s a picture…

    Tweet from Kathy in South Carolina [AT]KBinSC:

    The most famous white Hispanic helped rescue 4 Americans.

    The most famous black Caucasian refused to rescue 4 Americans!
