As a member of The Avengers, Captain America has a lot of superhero friends. But he’s always happy to bring another hero into the fold.
Sudbury native Chris Evans sent a heartwarming video to 6-year-old Bridger Walker, who suffered numerous injuries after saving his younger sister from a dog attack, according to his family.
Bridger’s aunt, Nicole Walker, first shared the boy’s story on Instagram on July 12, saying that the Wyoming child needed around 90 stitches after stepping in front of a charging dog on July 9.
“He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister,” Walker wrote. “He later said, ‘If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.’ He got home from the hospital last night. 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.”
On Wednesday, Walker posted a video of Bridger and his sister watching a video from Evans, complete with Bridger in a Captain America suit.
