REPORT: George Zimmerman helped rescue family from overturned SUV

Days after he was acquitted of the murder of Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman helped a family get out of an overturned vehicle in Sanford, CNN is reporting.

The incident happened four days after Zimmerman was acquitted by a jury in that city. Seminole County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Heather Smith said Zimmerman and another man helped the two adults and two children out of the SUV that had overturned in the area of Interstate 4 and State Road 46.

Authorities were called after the SUV went off the road and rolled over.

According to the report, by the time a deputy arrived, Zimmerman and another man already had helped the family out of the vehicle, Smith said, CNN reported.

Zimmerman did not witness the crash, and he left after making contact with the deputy, Smith said.

No injuries were reported.

Zimmerman has been out of the public eye since a jury acquitted him of second degree murder on July 13, sparking demonstrations across the country.
