SANFORD, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — George Zimmerman helped save the lives of a family of four that were involved in a single-car accident.
According to a Seminole County Sheriff’s Office report, the family was driving in a Ford Explorer SUV when it went off the road and rolled over in Sanford last week.
A responding deputy reported that when he arrived Zimmerman and another man helped the two parents and two children out of the vehicle.
The report states that Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the responding deputy.
No one in the car was injured.
This is the first known public sighting of Zimmerman since he was acquitted of second-degree murder charges in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense.
