HEROIC six-year-old Bridger Walker beamed as he held up the WBC ‘Honorary Champion’ belt he was rewarded for bravery.
The youngster, from Wyoming in the US, saw a dog and then deliberately stood in front of his sister before the canine bit him on his left cheek on July 9.
WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman tweeted: AND THE NEW WBC CHAMPION OF THE WORLD, Bridger “The bravest man on Earth” Walker !”
“We are so proud of you, dear Bridger; You are a real life hero!”
Bridger required 90 stitches on his face as a result of his injuries.
Despite being wounded, he helped his sister hide from the dog, according to Newsweek.
“If someone had to die, I thought it should be me,” the youngster reportedly told his aunt Nikki according to an Instagram post.
Bridger was stitched up and he is now resting at home.
His selfless act has gone viral as one of Nikki’s Instagram posts has received over 200,000 likes and 11,000 comments.
