The man who was acquitted slightly over a week ago in the Trayvon Martin murder trial is being credited with assisting in rescuing a family of four in an automobile crash as reported by Fox News on July 22, 2013.
Sanford Police Department Captain Jim McAuliffe is today crediting George Zimmerman with being one of the two men who assisted in rescuing a set of parents and their two children from their overturned SUV last week.
It is widely presumed that the second man was Zimmerman’s personal bodyguard, who has yet to be publically identified.
Capt McAuliffe also stated that one of the yet to be identified crash victims personally gave the recently released from custody Zimmerman as the man who saved him from the wreckage of his mangled vehicle.
The police captain stated the anonymous driver told responding firefighters, “George Zimmerman pulled me out.”
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) also made public that the responding deputy stated that upon his arrival to the crash scene, two men — one of whom was Zimmerman — had already rescued the family from the SUV which had overturned an undisclosed number of times.
According to the SCSO, Zimmerman was not a witness to the actual crash itself, but after the rescue had taken place and a call was made to authorities, he left after speaking with the responding law enforcement official.
Meanwhile, Zimmerman’s parent have told ABC News that they have yet to be able to return home due to death threats.
According to George’s father, Robert Zimmerman:
We have had an enormous amount of death threats.
George’s legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people have had death threats …
‘Everyone with Georgie’s DNA should be killed’ — just every kind of horrible thing you can imagine.
