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."

So over this black vs white. Jay, B, JT...so ignorant. When did you voice your concern about when a black man kills a white man? Don't recall you losing sleep for days. Wasn't just a drink and candy. Fool was going to make Lean. Look it up. Sad story but it was t a race thing. You are contributing with mainstream news. The state tried everything to get a conviction it couldn't. State even said it wasn't a race thing. Get the facts first instead of reading headlines. Looking forward to you standing up and speak when the rolls are reversed. Please boycott Florida so we don't have to see your version of Al Sharpton. BTW, why were t you two here when the verdict was announced. You could've held the white bucket for his collections.

*That "Story" is about as REAL as his BS "STORIES",FAKE INJURIES(Sanford Police are now GZ's PR campaign?? They are Corrupt as well as that legal system). He had FAKE injuries(TM did NOT have ANY damage to his hands after GZ's BS story of being MMA punched 25-30x...If TM didn't hit him? There's only 1 other person that was there-GZ!! Self inflicted BS "wounds" *Mr. Good said he saw "seconds" of wrestling-yet after talking to Det. Serino he changes his story to seeing MMA punches that he swears under oath he did NOT see hit GZ's face??? WTF??? Look at GZ's pics- his "bloody pic & police video & sanford pics are supposed to be the same night? NOT He's 30lbs. thinner w/ a tan(those pics came out aug. 2012-That's why the tan!)FAKE! *He went to his bond hearing very thin(proof he was losing weight- then after he gained a lot of weight to claim the Tubby Defense & LIE about his MMA Classes & Criminal justice classes. That trial was STAGED w/ a "stacked deck"...that's why basic GZ info the Prosecutors sat by & said/did nothing. BASIC INFO- HIS VIOLENT HISTORY,VIOLENT WORK HISTORY,VIOLENT ARRESTS...I didn't see what was on GZ's phone ?? pics,texts? He is a Pathological LIAR & tried to change his Appearance several times to make everyone believe his BS STORIES! *GZ IS A Murderer! TM was RT handed-look at his autopsy records & see what damage to his KNUCKLES were on his fists? *NONE! *(TM had a tiny scrape on his left ring finger,not KNUCKLE!) *He fooled a LOT of people...w/ his self inflicted trivial "wounds"
