Chris Evans Sends A Heartwarming Message To Kid Who Was Attacked By Dog While Protecting His Sister

Captain America actor Chris Evans might be finished playing the American hero, but the actor is not done doing good deeds for people in need. Evans has sent a heartwarming video message to a young boy whose story of saving his sister from a dog attack and sustaining serious injuries went viral.

On July 9, six-year-old Bridger Walker from Wyoming stepped in when a young German shepherd mix lunged at his 4-year-old sister. While protecting his sister, the dog mauled Bridger’s face, and he was hurt so bad that he needed a two-hour surgery and 90 stitches.

Bridger said of the attack, per CNN, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” Bridger’s aunt created an Instagram page for Bridger and his story, and Evans took notice.

“I read your story. I saw what you did. 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,'” Evans told Bridger in his video message, which you can see below. “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. I’m gonna track down your address and I’m gonna send you an authentic Captain America shield, because pal, you deserve it. 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 could slow you down.”

There are no words. We are so, so thankful.

Anne Hathaway also responded to Bridger’s story, writing on Instagram, “I’m not an Avenger, but I know a superhero when I see one. I can only hope I’m half as brave in my life as you are in yours, Bridger. Wishing you an easeful recovery, and many cool looking rocks.”
