Algunos dicen que el amor fraternal es uno de los vínculos más fuertes que existen y en este caso no cabe lugar a duda. Este niño de apenas 6 años arriesgó su vida para salvar a su pequeña hermana del ataque de un perro.

El protagonista de esta historia es Bridger Walker, considerado por su familia, su comunidad y por todo aquel que escucha su historia como un héroe debido a su valentía y su determinación de proteger a su pariente más cercano.

Ambos niños estaban jugando afuera de su casa el pasado 9 de julio en la ciudad de Cheyenne, estado de Wyoming, cuando el perro del vecino comenzó a ladrarle. Al ver que la actitud del animal era cada vez más agresiva, Bridger decidió interponerse entre el can y su hermana.

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

El perro lo atacó con arañazos y mordidas en su cabeza y cara. A pesar del dolor, el niño se paró para tomar a su hermana por el brazo y alejarla del can, lo que probablemente le salvó la vida.

El ataque afectó su frente, labios y su ojo y mejilla izquierdas y le dejó una herida pronunciada en el rostro. Tras ser llevado a urgencias recibió 90 puntos de sutura.

La tía de los hermanos contó su historia en Instagram y etiquetó a los Avengers; rápidamente la publicación se hizo viral. Incluso las acciones del pequeño héroe fueron aplaudidas por estrellas como Anne Hathaway y Mark Ruffalo y hasta recibió un mensaje personal del Capitán América, Chris Evans.
