Bridger, six-year-old hero as he confronts attacking dog in the home’s back yard & rescues his little sister.
Bridger and his sister were playing in their friends home when another friend pointed at a dog in the yard. Their friend described one as a “nice” dog and the other as a “mean” dog. Immediately, the mean dog charged at them and Bridger took on the attack to save his little sister.
Then, the dog latched onto his cheeks and as he struggled with it, he yelled at his sister to run. After its release, the six-year-old boy led his sister to a more secure place from the attacking dog.
As a result, Bridger had to undergo almost two hours of surgery with over 99 stitches. The skilled doctor who attended to him described him as the “bravest patient” he had ever had. After the surgery, Bridger’s father asked why he did that. In his own words, he said, “If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.”
Moreover, his aunty, Nicole, shared his story on her Instagram page, reaching out to the Avengers including Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Mark Rufallo and other heroes. In her post, she stated that the reason is they can “learn about this latest addition to their ranks.” Thus, her post reached so many people with thousands of comments.
Since then, Bridger received private messages from Avengers actors and also actress Anne Hathaway. Actor Chris Evans, the Marvel star who played Captain America, sent a private message to Bridger. In his words, he said:
“Hey Bridger, Captain America here. How are you doing buddy? So I read your story, I saw what you did. Now I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of this over the last couple of days but let me be the next one to tell you – pal, you’re a hero. Your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you. I’m going to track down your address and send you an authentic Captain American shield because you deserve it. Keep being the man you are, we need people like you.”Chris Evans
