Hero George Zimmerman Rescues Car Crash Victims: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"George Zimmerman helped rescue a family from an overturned car after an accident in Florida, four days after he was acquitted of murder, police said.


Zimmerman was one of two men who helped free four family members trapped in an overturned blue Ford Explorer after it crashed on a highway in Sanford around 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday, the Seminole County Sheriff`s Office said."

This incident illustrates the civic-minded spirit and heroic nature of George Zimmerman. It`s the same noble spirit that motivated him to be a watch volunteer when he lived at The Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, Florida.

There have been hundreds of death threats made against Zimmerman, and it`s in his best interest to keep a low profile. When Zimmerman saw the overturned vehicle in Florida, nobody would have blamed him had he kept on driving. Every time that Zimmerman surfaces, especially in Florida, he is putting his life in danger.

But when the volunteer watchman spotted the wreck, instinct took over, and he pulled over, grabbed a fire extinguisher from his car, and helped rescue the family.

At the Retreat at Twin Lakes Zimmerman was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and he had no other option but to shoot Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

On the Florida highway Zimmerman was in the right place at the right time, and his quick response helped free four family members trapped in an overturned SUV.

Zimmerman has been vilified for killing Trayvon Martin in self-defense, and I doubt that he will be praised for his heroic actions in freeing this family.
