A brave little man from Cheyenne, Wyoming is hailed a hero after his courageous actions. Despite being only 6-year-old, Bridger didn’t hesitate to put his life on the line to protect his little sister from a dog attack. It happened a week ago, but the incredible story only surfaced a couple of days ago, after the young man’s aunt – Nikki Walker share it on Instagram.
“My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from an attacking dog,” she wrote. “He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister.” As his brave actions wasn’t inspiring already, when he was asked why he did it, Bridger’s response gave everyone goosebumps. “If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me,” the young hero said.

My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from an attacking dog. He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister. He later said, “If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.” He got home from the hospital last night. I know it’s a long shot, but I’m reaching out to the Avengers and other heroes so that they can learn about this latest addition to their ranks. Please, check your DM’s for my sweet nephew’s story. @tomholland2013 @chrishemsworth @robertdowneyjr @markruffalo @prattprattpratt @twhiddleston @chadwickboseman @vindiesel @chrisevans @vancityreynolds @thehughjackman Edit: I never expected my sweet nephew’s story to reach so many. Please, follow my other post (I only have two so far 😅) for the latest info regarding my sweet nephew and his family.
It could had been very bad for the little hero as his injuries required 90 stitches. But fortunately, he’s well now as he got back from the hospital. “After getting bit several times…he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe,” his aunt wrote in a post. “After receiving 90 stitches (give or take) from a skilled plastic surgeon, he’s finally resting at home. We love our brave boy!”

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
“His wounds are looking so much better!” his aunty wrote. “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.” The little one’s heroic actions impressed everyone and so many people showed their support for his bravery!!!
“What a brave boy. You must all be so proud of him. Please introduce them both to a kind, loving, gentle dog so they know that they don’t all behave like that,” one user wrote. While another one, added: “This young man’s story made me tear up. With all the craziness in the world, it’s so heartwarming to see such an act of selflessness and love. Bridger is a superhero in every sense of the word.”
