Bridger Walker viralizou ao ter sua história contada nas redes sociais de sua tia, Nicole Noel Walker. O menino de 6 anos salvou sua irmã de um ataque de um cachorro feroz. Sem dar muitos detalhe, ela contou que ele se jogou na frente do cão para evitar que o animal mordesse sua irmã e a mantê-la segura. As informações são da Revista Marie Claire.
No entanto, o animal o atacou com várias mordidas no rosto e na cabeça, equanto tentava correr para também se salvar. Segundo o relato de Nicole, ele teve que passar por uma cirurgia e acabou levando 90 pontos no total. Ela ainda contou que o menino disse não ter pensado duas vezes ao fazer isso: “Se alguém tivesse que morrer, pensei que fosse eu”, relatou a criança.
Em seguida, ela postou: “Meu sobrinho é um herói que salvou sua irmã mais nova de um ataque de cachorro. Ele próprio o enfrentou para que o cachorro não pegasse sua irmã”, escreveu em seu perfil do Instagram.
Nicole ainda informou que Bridge já recebeu alta do hospital e está em casa. No entanto, não revelou onde o caso aconteceu.

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
