    Four days after a jury found him not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman has reappeared.

    This time, he’s being credited with rescuing a family trapped in an overturned car. New details are just emerging of this incident that happened last Wednesday near the intersection of Interstate 4 and State Road 46 in Sanford, Fla.

    Seminole County Police say a family of four went off the road and their SUV rolled over. That’s when Zimmerman and another man sprang into action helping the two kids and their parents get out of the car alive.

    This is the first sighting of the former neighborhood watch since his highly publicized acquittal that prompted many rallies and protests.

    Also Monday, Sanford police have turned over all of the evidence from Zimmerman’s trial to the FBI and the Department of Justice.

    This, as federal investigators look into whether Zimmerman violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.

    The items sent to the feds include the clothes that both Zimmerman and Martin were wearing the night of the shooting. Police also sent the Arizona drink can and Skittles Martin was carrying that night, as well as Zimmerman’s gun.
