Six-year-old Bridger Walker has been making headlines and winning hearts for his recent brave act. The young boy jumped in front of a dog to protect his sister and in turn received 90 stitches. He even went on to say, "If someone had to die, I thought it should be me." The little one won many hearts, including 'Captain America' Chris Evans.

Chris recorded a message and sent it to Bridger. A video shared by the boy's aunt Nicole has been going viral. In the video, Bridger is seen dressed as 'Captain America' as he still sits next to his sister, and watches Chris Evans on his tablet.

In the video, Chris Evans lauds Bridger Walker for his brave act, calling him a hero. He also promised to sent the six-year-old 'Captain America' shield after tracking down his address, making Walker smile. He later confessed feeling great about it. Chris Evans also asked Walker to hang in there because recovering might be tough, but also adds that there isn't anything that could slow down the young boy.

Bridger Walker has also been named 'honorary world champion' by the World Boxing Council. The post was first shared by Nicole, who narrated the incident while also sharing before and after images of Bridger Walker. The images have now gone viral on social media.


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
