Un niño de 6 años se convirtió en un héroe después de que arriesgó su vida por salvar a su hermanita menor del ataque de un perro. El pequeño terminó gravemente herido y, al preguntarle el porqué de sus acciones, se limitó a responder: “Si alguien tenía que morir, debía ser yo”.

La semana pasada, el pequeño Bridger Walker se puso en peligro cuando saltó frente a un perro para proteger a su hermana, publicó su tía, Nikki Walker, en Instagram.

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

A pesar de que lo mordieron varias veces en la mejilla, el niño pudo agarrar la mano de su hermana y ponerla a salvo.

Bridger terminó con heridas graves en la boca, la mejilla y el ojo izquierdo, requirió 90 puntos después del ataque.  Ahora se  está recuperando en casa y  sus heridas “se ven mucho mejor”.

Sin resentimiento con la familia del perro

La familiar del llamado “niño héroe” también destacó que no guardan ningún resentimiento con los dueños del perro.

La tía compartió la historia con la esperanza de obtener “algunas palabras de aliento de sus héroes favoritos”, incluidos los actores Vin Diesel, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland y Chris Hemsworth.

“Amamos a nuestro valiente y queremos que todos los demás superhéroes sepan sobre este último héroe que se unió a sus filas”, concluyó.

Y el Capitán América fue el primero en alzar la mano.

There are no words. We are so, so thankful.
