His age is inversely proportional to his bravery. The young Bridger Walker, only six, saved his four-year-old sister from the attack of a dog who wanted to attack her. The young man intervened, collecting the bites in his place. The dog, a young German Shepherd dog, clung to his cheek, inflicting serious facial injuries, which would have required two hours of medical intervention and 90 stitches according to the family of this courageous boy. When his father asked him why he did it, young Bridger reportedly said, “If someone were to die, I thought it must be me.”
Captain America promises to send him his shield
The WBC, the international boxing federation, has paid tribute to the young man by awarding him the title of honorary champion, while a replica of the world champion’s belt will be sent to him with other gifts, to him as well as to his sister. “At the WBC, we are very honored to name Bridger as our honorary champion for his incredibly courageous actions, which represent the highest values of humanity,” the federation said in a statement.
Bridger Walker’s brilliant action has toured social networks in the United States, thanks in particular to American actress Anne Hathaway. The one who plays Catwoman in one of the Batman by Christopher Nolan allowed himself to challenge the Avengers in an Instagram publication which was an incredible success on the canvas. Contacted by some of the most prestigious members of the famous Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) franchise, the boy received a personal message from actor Chris Evans, who plays Captain America on screen. The latter promised to send him his shield.
