In case you missed it, a six-year-old boy named Bridger has gone wildly viral for his selfless act of stepping between his younger sister and a charging dog. Bridger was injured in the attack and is now resting at home after a trip to the hospital where he got a whopping 90 stitches in his face and head.
The brave little boy’s story has spread around the world over the past few days, and it’s reached some other superheroes who wanted to send Bridger their support and praise. In fact, Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, a.k.a. actor Chris Evans, caught wind of Bridger’s incredible story and decided to send him a personal message.
Bridger watched the video with his sister, and while his face is still healing, you can hear the excitement in his voice as he watches the video with his own Captain America gear on. In fact, Chris said that he’d also be sending this courageous young man an official Captain America shield of his own!
