Out of something quite horrific, a true moment of joy has emerged!

Captain America star Chris Evans has sent a heartfelt message to a young fan who did something heroic for his young sister.

"On July 9th, my six year old nephew Bridger saved his little sister’s life by standing between her and a charging dog." the young boy's aunty wrote on Instagram.

"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."

And then the boy's dreams came true - a video message from Captain America star Chris Evans!

Chris praises him for his heroic act, and it clearly means to the world to him. You can watch the video message for yourself below...
