A new hero was born. But those who have no cape or superpowers. His name is Bridger and he is just a 6 year old boy. In the last few hours, he won the applause of the entire world for saving his little sister from being devoured by the neighbor’s dog. “Hey everyone. Please share my nephew’s story so that I have as much exposure as possible. We know our little hero would love a few words of encouragement from his favorite heroes, ”wrote Nicole Walker on Instagram, the little one’s aunt.
According to his account, everything happened in the state of Wyoming (USA) last Thursday, July 9, when Bridger came between his sister and the furious animal that attacked her. “After being bitten several times in the face and head, he took his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe,” added the woman, who published several photos on the same social network where, first, the boy with his sister, before the attack, and after how his face was from the brutal assault. According to the now hero’s aunt, the plastic surgeon who treated him had to give him about 90 points in the face.
“We love our brave and we want all other superheroes to know about this latest hero who joined their ranks,” added the woman, who set out to label various Hollywood actors who have portrayed heroes in films like Tom Holland ( Spider-Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), among others.
The photos and story of Nicole Walker was published this week and the moving story has generated almost 500,000 “likes” and thousands of comments praising the little boy who risked his life for his sister.
Lastly, the American explained that they have no resentment towards the neighbors, owners of the dog that attacked the children, because they are good people and have been very kind to Bridger and the family.
The woman said that she is recovering satisfactorily and that she is already safe and sound at home. Although she still finds it hard to smile, she assures that her personality is still intact and that she keeps repeating that she would do the same for her sister again.
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
