Less than a week after he was acquitted in the murder of teen Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman emerged from hiding to help rescue a family of four who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said.

Mr. Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of two parents and their two children trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla., Thursday evening, less than a mile from where the shooting of Martin occurred, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said, ABC News reported.

No one was reported injured in the crash. Mr. Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said in the ABC News report.
