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.

the area where there event allegedly took place is a fairly busy area...strange how ONLY GEORGE was involved....and it's odd that we're just now (5 days later) hearing about his 1st Post-Aquital heroic stunt.
.
Next we'll hear how he single handedly tackled an old lady who failed to use caution while driving her Hoveround power-chair

We have a new super hero!

He singlehandedly killed the Drugged Thug. He saves families from burning cars.

He is the ZIM MAN! Cleaning up society one hoodie at a time!

Maybe a Superman or Batman team up!

He could rescue a 100 people and it doesn't change anything, He is still a MURDERER. He probably caused the crash to begin with.

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but what is now looks like is..... someone can go find George in a dark alley, shoot him dead, claim self-defense and (after knocking a few lame abrasions into his own head for effect) win in a murder trial against him?
