In the last hours, social networks invaded the image of Bridger, the 6-year-old boy who was left with his face shattered for saving his little sister from the attack of a dog. The photographs were published by his aunt Nicole Noel Walker who recounted the feat. Such was the viralization of the story that it reached Chris Evans who did not hesitate to send a message to the little hero.
“Dude, you are a hero, what you did was so brave, so disinterested. Your sister is lucky to have you as her older brother. Your parents should be so proud of you,” the actor told him in a video. And he promised him that I was going to give him an official Captain America shield.
“I will send you the authentic Captain America shield because, friend, you deserve it,” said the man who played Steven Rogers in fiction. He added: “He is still the man you are, we need people like you. Hang in there, I know recovery can be tough, but from what I’ve seen, I don’t think there is much that can slow you down. “
Beyond the boy’s bravery story making it across the world, it was his aunt Nicole who tried to locate Bridger’s heroes to cheer him up a bit. Fortunately, they were able to reach Evans through Comic Book reporter Brandon Davis.
