"If someone had to die...."

Bridger Walker, a brave 6-year-old from Cheyenne, Wyoming, suffered terrible-looking injuries after rescuing his 4-year-old sister from a dog attack. He jumped into action when the German shepherd mix (who was later put down) charged toward his sister. As Bridger shielded her, the dog latched onto his face. Bridger had to undergo two hours of surgery and 90 stitches, but it's his reason for stepping in that will tug your heartstrings.

After the accident, Bridger told his father, "If someone had to die, I thought it should be me." His act of courage has spread around the world and earned him some high-profile fans, including Captain America. His family says other on-screen heroes, including The Hulk and Spiderman, have reached out to tell Bridger how proud they are of him.

  1. So precious. In these days acts of heroism are the beauty of God's presence. This brought tears for if a child can see so clearly how to be unselfishly protective in doing right, mankind cannot shirk its job in also doing so.
