Real heroes come in all shapes and sizes and some heroes could be as young as a 6-year-old boy Bridger Walker who fought off a dog that attacked his 4-year-old sister. He had put himself between his sister and the charging dog and got severely hurt. He suffered numerous injuries to his face and head and his surgery went on for over 2 hours. He got more than 90 stitches but earned the love and respect from millions of people who heard his brave story.
The post, shared by his aunt Nicole, was loved by everyone. She wrote: "Hey, all. Please, share my nephew’s story so that it gets as much exposure as it can. We know that our little hero would love some words of encouragement from his favorite heroes. On July 9th, my six year old nephew Bridger saved his little sister’s life by standing between her and a charging dog. After getting bit several times on the face and head, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe. He later said, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” After receiving 90 stitches (give or take) from a skilled plastic surgeon, he’s finally resting at home. We love our brave boy and want all the other superheroes to know about this latest hero who joined their ranks."
Once the story of this brave guy went viral, even Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo responded to the post. But Chris Evans went a step ahead and shared a video and gifted the little champ an authentic Captain America shield. In the video, he said: "Hey, Bridger. Captain America here. How you doin’, buddy? So I read your story. I saw what you did, and I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of this over the last couple days, but let me be the next one to tell you: Pal, you’re a hero,” Evans said. “What you did was so brave, so selfless. Your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you."
