Earlier this week, a 6-year-old boy named Bridger Walker saved his younger sister from a dog attack. The young boy defended his sister by selflessly putting himself in front of his sister to defend her from the dog. He was bit several times, but managed to whisk his sister away to safety. He’s currently safe and recovering, but many are praising the young boy’s bravery. Captain America actor Chris Evans heard about Bridger’s heroic deed and reached out to him.
You can watch the message Chris Evans sent to Bridger below.

“I’m sure you’ve heard this a lot over the last couple of the days, but let me be the next one to tell you: Pal, you’re a hero. What you did was so brave, so selfless, your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you.”
He added, “Keep being the man you are, we need people like you. Hang in there, I know recovery might be tough, but based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think there’s much that can slow you down.”
It’s incredible how brave Bridger acted to save his sister. Chris Evans is gifting the young boy with an authentic Captain America shield to reward his noble deed. We hope Bridger recovers soon to enjoy his wonderful gift from one of his favorite Marvel heroes!
