Bridger Walker lives in Wyoming with his family including his little sister. is only six, but that didn’t stop him from being the hero and protecting his younger sister.
On Monday his aunt, Nikki Walker,shared the story on Instagram, writing that on July 9th Bridger deliberately stood in front of his sister that was trying to attack her. He was bitten badly and ended up in the hospital but wouldn't leave for medical assistance till he was sure his sister was OK. “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.”
When he was asked why he did it Bridger said “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.”
You may have seen his photo or read about him as the story went viral earlier in the week. Well yesterday his Aunt's wish that other superheroes know who Bridger is came true.
Thursday the actor who plays Spider-Man, Tom Holland, called Bridger to invite him to the set of the latest Spider-Man movie when it resumes production. You can see he has a lot of trouble smiling but it couldn't be stopped.
Then below that video you see Bridger watching a video that was sent to him Chris Evans who plays Captain America who praised Bridger as a hero and added "Keep being the man you are, we need people like you." The best part was he said be on the lookout because he’s sending him an authentic “Captain America” shield, from one hero to another.
