Bridger Walker is a very brave little man. When he saw that his sister was about to get attacked by a dog, he decided to risk his own life just so he could save her. This happened on 9th of July when his sister was about to get attacked by a charging dog. Bridger stepped in front of her and got bitten multiple time on his face but luckily managed to walk away alive. He received around 90 stitches to his face.
However, the statement that he made was a balled one. He said that if someone was to die in that situation it was going to be him. He couldn’t see his little sister get harmed. His heroism did not go unnoticed thought. His story went viral all over social media and now people are still talking about the brave little fellow.
