L’acteur Chris Evans fait un beau cadeau à un jeune garçon défiguré après avoir sauvé sa soeur qui était attaquée par un chien - VIDEO

C'est une histoire racontée sur les réseaux sociaux qui a déjà été relayée des milliers de fois. Bridger, un enfant âgé de six ans, a sauvé sa soeur alors qu'un chien fonçait sur elle.

"Après avoir été mordu plusieurs fois au visage et la tête, il a saisi la main de sa sœur et a couru avec elle pour la protéger", a raconté sa tante, Nicole Noel Walker, en précisant que les faits sont survenus le 9 juillet dernier. Le jeune garçon - qui a déclaré "Si quelqu’un devait mourir, j’ai pensé que ça devait être moi" - a eu 90 points de suture et se repose désormais chez lui.

"Nous aimons notre brave garçon et voulons que tous les autres super-héros connaissent ce dernier héros qui a rejoint leurs rangs", a indiqué sa tante en mentionnant plusieurs acteurs ayant incarné des super-héros au cinéma, comme Tom Holland, Chris Hemsworth, Vin Diesel ou encore Chris Evans.

Ce dernier, qui a campé le rôle de Captain America, a tenu à saluer le geste de Bridger en lui adressant une vidéo (voir ci-dessus). "Mon pote, tu es un héros. Ce que tu as fait était si courageux, si généreux. Ta soeur a tellement de chance de t’avoir comme grand frère. Tes parents doivent être si fiers de toi", a déclaré le comédien. Avant de continuer : "Accroche-toi, je sais que la récupération peut être difficile, mais d’après ce que j’ai vu, je ne pense pas qu’il y ait grand chose qui puisse te ralentir".

Chris Evans a ensuite fait une annonce au garçon : il va recevoir l'un des vrais boucliers de Captain America, car il "le mérite".

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

Have y’all noticed that I have no idea what I’m doing yet? #UmmmIAccidentallyWentViral? When I first posted for Bridger, I expected maybe 500 likes at most and maybe a couple dozen reshares. But here we are. So much love from all walks of life (including a few celebs)! And we just got off a call with a friendly neighborhood idol. (Pic is of Bridger’s reaction right after the call.) Bridger is over the moon! Can’t wait to show him what’s next: a message from some guy who doesn’t like bullies. Gotta wait for the stardust to clear from his eyes first, though. Mission accomplished, everyone! We can’t thank you enough. #BridgerStrong EDIT: I feel like I should also mention that Bridger has also loved all of the other videos and messages I’ve shown him from all of you. We might not be able to get to everyone right away, but your messages are no less appreciated.
