"George Zimmerman, the man recently acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, helped rescue a family from an overturned SUV last week, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
According to sheriff’s spokeswoman Heather Smith, deputies were called to the crash about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. A Ford Explorer — with two children and their parents inside — had gone off the road and rolled over in the area of Interstate 4 and State Road 46, Smith said.
By the time a deputy arrived, Zimmerman and another man "had already helped assist the family by getting them out of the overturned vehicle," Smith said.
See interview with Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara, who told WOFL-Channel 35 he wasn’t surprised that Zimmerman stopped to help the family.
"It’s just in his nature," O’Mara said. "I just wish people would look at this and understand this is who he is."
