Bridger Walker

Bridger Walker is a six-year-old little boy. On July 9th, while he and his little sister were walking, a dog started charging at them. Bridger decided to step in front of his little sister to protect her.

The dog attacked Bridger instead. After a bit, Bridger was able to grab his sister’s hand and run with her to safety.

He ended up having to go to a plastic surgeon and had around 90 stitches on his face. He is slowly recovering and is doing great!

Later he shared with his parents, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” What a sweet little boy.

The Response

His aunt later uploaded his story on social media and the number of responses was phenomenal. Many wanted to support him and his family through a GoFundMe while others wanted to show their support and give him rocks, as he loves geology.

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. @tomholland2013 @chrishemsworth @robertdowneyjr @markruffalo @prattprattpratt @twhiddleston @chadwickboseman @vindiesel @chrisevans EDIT: I just finished visiting with Bridger at his home. His wounds are looking so much better! He’s in great spirits, and his awesome personality is intact. He can’t smile too widely yet, but he was grinning as I read some of your comments to him. I’d also like to mention here that the dog’s owners are really great people who have been nothing but kind to Bridger and his family. We feel no resentment toward them at all, and—if anything—there’s only been an increase of love between our families as a result of this incident. EDIT 2: Once again we’re blown away by the amazing comments and messages that Bridger’s receiving. I’ve had lots of inquiries about a GoFundMe. Bridger’s family has asked that any one wishing to help out financially can, instead, donate to @mission_22 or @wwp. Bridger is also a huge fan of Science, especially Geology. So I’m going to start a post where people can share with him pictures of cool rocks that they see. EDIT 3: Once again, everyone’s kindness has meant so much to us. I’m trying to get to all of the messages that I can, but it may take some time. For those who have inquired about sending Bridger some rocks, here’s the address to use: Bridger Walker P.O. Box 22141 Cheyenne, WY 82003 #BridgerStrong

However, this was not all. He became a hero, and his heroes, the Avengers, took note of that and reached out to him as well.

Hulk was the first to reach out and said, “more of man than many, many I have seen or known.”

Entertainment Weekly noted that many other Marvel heroes showed their support to Bridger: “Numerous other onscreen superheroes celebrated Bridger, including Robbie Amell (who plays Firestorm on The Flash), Brie Larson (who plays Captain Marvel in the Marvel films), and Grant Gustin (who plays the Flash on The CW).”

Captain America

One of the best responses was from Chris Evans, Captain America. He sent a video to Bridger showing his support and promised him an official Captain America shield.

Bridger had his full Captain America outfit on while he watched the video from Chris Evans. It was a moment he will probably never forget in his life!

This little boy saved his younger sister from a dog attack and was noticed by Chris Evans, Captain America, along with many others. He deserves all the praise for sure for this sweet and memorable action!
