George Zimmerman is being hailed a HERO in Florida this morning ... after cops say he helped RESCUE a family of 4 from an overturned vehicle just days after the Trayvon Martin verdict.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office tells TMZ ... around 5:45 pm on Wednesday July 17, Zimmerman noticed an overturned SUV off a highway in Sanford, FL ... and sprang into action.

According to the SCSO, Zimmerman and another man approached the car and helped all 4 of the passengers -- 2 parents and 2 children -- get out of the wrecked car.

Cops say ... "Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy.  There were no reports of injuries to the vehicle occupants."

FYI -- Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin on the evening of July 13th.

The identity of the family has not been released.

Well, I guess now he's supposed to be a hero, huh? Maybe he should have shown that same compassion to Trayvon.

He did it while wearing a cape with a large Z on it and he shot out the cars windows so the family could escape.
