George Zimmerman, hero? Just one week after being acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin, shooter Zimmerman emerged from hiding to save a person trapped in an overturned truck on a Florida highway.

According to ABC News, Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe says Zimmerman "pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over" at the intersection of a Florida highway last week.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route 417, police said, less than a mile from where he shot Martin.

Zimmerman had been keeping a low profile since his acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin. Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year old Martin in Sanford, Florida, on February 26, 2012. The jury agreed the shooting was in self-defense.
