Meet This 6-Year-Old Boy Who Saved His Sister from Dog Attack & Got 90 Stitches

No matter how many times you fight with your brother, he would always have your back. He might be the one who teases you a lot, but not to mention he also loves you the most. A recent story of a brother saving his sister from a dog attack proves that brothers’ love is unconditional. 

The story of a 6-year-old boy, Bridger Walker, is doing the rounds on the internet for good reasons. It was on 9th July 2020 when German Shepherd attacked his little sister. Bridger Walker rescued her somehow but was brutally attacked by the dog. The incident happened when Bridger, his friend, and his sister went into the backyard, where dogs were present. His friend pointed to one as a nice dog, and another one was a mean dog. 

Suddenly, that mean dog attacked his sister. He put himself between the dog and his sister to protect her. The dog latched him, and Bridger told his sister to run. 

He underwent surgery and got 90 stitches. When his father asked him why did he jump in between, them he said, 

“If someone had to die, I thought it should be me."

His aunt shared his story on her social media account and said that he is a huge fan of Avengers. After getting attacked by the dog, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran away.  In this photo, you can see Bridger with his sister and stitches. His face is swollen and bruised. 

She even tagged actors who played superheroes in movies and expected a reply from them to encourage him. She tagged Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Vin Diesel, Chris Pratt, and others.

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

Surprisingly, all the superheroes commented and shared his story on their social accounts.

Mark Ruffalo commented, 

“People who put well beings of others in front of themselves are the most heroic and thoughtful people I know. I truly respect and admire your courage and your heart."

Chris Evans sent a video message praising him. He said, 

"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. 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 further added, 

“Keep being the man you are, we need people like you."

Anne Hathaway wrote on her Instagram handle, 

"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.”

After receiving millions of messages and comments on the post, his aunt wrote, 

“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." 

Robert Downey Jr. said, 

“My name’s Robert Downey Jr., I play ‘Tony,’ that makes me an old friend of Cap’s. I heard he sent a shield your way: I’m going to do one better. You call me on your next birthday, I got something special for you. ‘Late. By the way – that’s a promise; a promise beats a shield."

Not only Superheroes but other people too commented on his bravery. He is praised from around the world for his bravery. 

Final Words

The good news is, after getting 90 stitches, Bridger is fine and is resting at home. His family wrote in a statement, 

“May we follow Bridger's example, approach the world as a child, and bring greater peace to our own homes, communities, states, and countries.”

Bridger Walker is not alone who deserves to be a superhero in the film, but these real-life heroes also saved lives and showed their bravery.

Do you know any people brave & young and saved the lives of people? If so, then share his/her story, we would love to write about them.
