Chris Evans Sends Real Captain America Shield To ‘Hero’ Six-year-old Who Saved Sister From Dog Attack {WATCH}

This story of a little boy who saved his sister from a dog attack has gone viral.

Nikki Walker shared the story about her 6-year-old nephew, Bridger. “My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from an attacking dog,” Nikki wrote. “He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister.”

Nikki continued, “He later said, ‘If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.'” In a follow-up post, Nikki shared that the attack happened on July 9, writing, “After getting bit several times on the face and head, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe.”

“I know it’s a long shot, but I’m reaching out to the Avengers and other heroes so that they can learn about this latest addition to their ranks'”

An outpouring of love and support poured in from many celebs including The Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo who wrote:

“Dear Bridger, I just read about what happened to you and I wanted to reach out to say this… People who put the 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. Real courage isn’t dominating people or fighting against people or walking around like a tough guy. Real courage is knowing what is right to do and doing it even when it might end up hurting you somehow. You are more of a man than many, many I have seen or known. With Admiration…Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk/Professor).”
