UPDATE: Zimmerman's Heroic Rescue - Police Report, Identities & 911 Calls
George Zimmerman has emerged from hiding for the first time since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin. However, this was a little unexpected…
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.
The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route 417, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where he shot Martin.
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.
While this may be some good publicity for Zimmerman, he better buckle up: according to his father, “[Zimmerman has] had an enormous amount of death threats. George’s legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people had had death threats.”
SHARE this good deed by Zimmerman, because you know the mainstream media won’t!
UPDATE: The audio posted is of two select 9-11 calls of the eight the emergency dispatcher received about the traffic accident.
The police incident report has been released to the media. The two adults Zimmerman assisted are Mark and Dana Gerstle. Zimmerman also reportedly helped two children, who are not named. No photos of the incident have been released. The family’s characteristics that can be released to the public is that the two adults are both white.
The couple was traveling in a 2004 Ford Explorer 4WD. The apparent cause of the crash is that the driver lost control while traveling northbound on the off-ramp of S.R. 417 and S.R. 400 in Seminole County, Florida the evening of July 17th. Today’s date is July 22nd – five days later.
