The rescue hasn’t gone unnoticed on Twitter, where an hilarious twitter feed erupted. Here are some of the posts on #thanksgeorge:
Just saw George Zimmerman breast feed a litter of abandon puppies. #ThanksGeorge
I also wonder how Zimmerman who supposedly was so soft he was helpless against a 158 pound boy could pull this guy out of a smoking car.
No one was injured in the car, so they didn't need to be "pulled out".
I'm not sure the car was smoking either. This wasn't a crash, it was a rollover.
Zimmerman "helped" them get out of the car. While that's nice, it's hardly heroic, or even noteworthy.
The incident occurred on July 17 in Sanford, Fla., near the intersection of Interstate 4 and State Road 46, officials confirmed to NBC News. The rescue was first reported by ABC News.
Zimmerman and another man were assisting a family of four when officers with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office arrived on the scene of the accident. A blue Ford Explorer had traveled off the road and rolled over, according to officials.
Zimmerman and the other man were helping the two children and their parents get out of the overturned vehicle, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said. The former neighborhood watch volunteer left the scene after making contact with police and did not witness the crash.
There were no injuries to any of the vehicle’s occupants, according to police.
If this accident had happened in Germany and Zimmerman hadn't helped ...
Omission to effect an easy rescue
Whosoever does not render assistance during accidents or a common danger or emergency although it is necessary and can be expected of him under the circumstances, particularly if it is possible without substantial danger to himself and without violation of other important duties shall be liable to imprisonment not exceeding one year or a fine.
Even if the person not giving his/her assistance is a Holocaust Survivor, and might still have no love for most Germans? Or, is an exception made for Jews that believe that Germans may get over-zealous in their beliefs?
Modifié par Ordonnance n°2000-916 du 19 septembre 2000 - art. 3 (V) JORF 22 septembre 2000 en vigueur le 1er janvier 2002
Quiconque pouvant empêcher par son action immédiate, sans risque pour lui ou pour les tiers, soit un crime, soit un délit contre l'intégrité corporelle de la personne s'abstient volontairement de le faire est puni de cinq ans d'emprisonnement et de 75000 euros d'amende.
Sera puni des mêmes peines quiconque s'abstient volontairement de porter à une personne en péril l'assistance que, sans risque pour lui ou pour les tiers, il pouvait lui prêter soit par son action personnelle, soit en provoquant un secours.
Even if the person not giving his/her assistance is a Holocaust Survivor, and might still have no love for most German nationals? Or, is an exception made for Jews that believe that many Germans may get over-zealous in their beliefs?
There was a long running situation comedy on American television, back in the '90's, where the last episode's story line had a similar law (that was fictitious), putting the main characters in jail, since they did not assist a person in trouble.
Would this law apply to tourists also?
Somewhat similar to helping a handicapped person in a wheelchair through a door. That's heroism? LOL
Somehow I can see both you and Firefly cheerfully driving by that van and not even for a moment entertaining the idea or giving aid of any kind.
Maybe you might and I mean might give a 911 call.
Zimmerman had shown that he is a citizen that get involved and aid his fellow man...
The way he aided Trayvon Martin...
