Reports surfaced on Monday that George Zimmerman saved a family from an overturned vehicle after his polarizing trial verdict, leading Twitter users to imagine his other heroic exploits.
#ThanksGeorge trended for a time Tuesday morning.
The heroic tinge to the tweets may have to do with the ABC News report that said he “emerged from hiding” and “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over.” The local sheriff's office says there were two parents and two children.
