Zimmerman, who hasn’t been seen publicly since his murder trial, apparently “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” last week near the “intersection of I-4 and route 417,” Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News.

The crash victim pulled out of his SUV identified Zimmerman to firefighters on the scene of the July 17 accident, Fox News reported.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said two parents and their two children were inside the Ford Explorer when it rolled over.

“The responding deputy said that when he arrived, two men — one of whom was Zimmerman — had already gotten the family out of the overturned vehicle,” the article said.

Zimmerman’s attorneys said this week that he wears a bullet-proof vest when he goes out in public because of all the death threats he has received since his acquittal.

According to ABC News, Zimmerman’s family has also received death threats since the verdict.
