The family that George Zimmerman rescued from an overturned SUV in Florida last week is white ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

According to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, the two adults who were pulled out of their overturned SUV on July 17 were described as a white male and a white female.

The report states that the SUV was traveling toward an off-ramp on State Road 417 when the driver lost control ... causing the vehicle to "go off road and roll over."

As we previously reported, two men responded to the accident and helped pull the family to safety -- one of the rescuers was George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Officials say there were 4 passengers inside the SUV at the time of the wreck -- 2 parents and 2 children.

TMZ has also obtained the 911 calls placed by witnesses moments after the crash, detailing the accident. Take a listen.

Wasn't he suppose to be busy hiding in a hole darker than Sadam's because he fears for his life? What's he doing out and about allegedly swooping in saving the day?

I don't know about this story.

Who cares what color they were! Maybe this is the universe's way of saying he's not such a monster the media has portrayed him to be and leave him alone!

You have GOT to be kidding me. I have been a TMZ follower for a while and have felt that you guys are pretty decent and fair and funny. This is none of the above. How many opportunities does one get in life to save anyone?? Regardless of color? The jury has spoken. Please be decent enough to leave race out of something to which it does NOT belong.

So????? Who cares if they were "WHITE"? A family was aided by some good samaritans. TMZ (and all other media outlets) stop trying to inflame the race issue. Stimulating debate is fine but causing division for profit is not OK. Glad the family made it out.

TMZ is a little racist. What difference does it make if they were white? This is trying to stir the pot and dig up trouble where none existed.
