A young boy named Bridger has recently made headlines as a hero. On July 9th, he protected his younger sister from a dog attack, by selflessly jumping in front of her. Bridger was bitten several times on the face, but he managed to pull himself and his sister to nearby safety.

The young boy later explained, ‘If someone had to die, I thought it should be me’.


Nikki Walker, Bridger’s aunt, shared the story through Instagram, while Bridger was recovering in hospital. He had to have ninety stitches in his face.

‘Pal, you’re a hero, 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… Keep being the man you are; we need people like you. Hang in there. I know recovery might be tough, but based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think there’s much that can slow you down.’

Evans has also promised to send Bridger an authentic Captain America shield.
