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.

Odd timing. Wouldn't be surprised to find out this is a fabrication meant to save him from people upset with him getting off scot free.

So, police set up a staged accident for their buddy Georgie to shine as a hero. I don't buy it. This s***bag is still the murderer of an innocent unarmed boy and will NEVER be a hero even if he saves a million people. Fuccem!

Doesn't take him long to start stalking another family in his car. They were just trying to get away from him and that caused the accident.
