Migrant’s Incredible ‘Spider-Man’ Rescue That Earned Him Citizenship and a Job

Following this week’s rescue of a small boy who was hanging from a fourth-floor balcony in Paris, a 22-year-old immigrant is being hailed as a “Spiderman” hero.

Mamoudou Gassama, who recently immigrated to France from Mali, was watching a football game in a restaurant when he spotted a crowd forming on the sidewalk.

A young youngster was sobbing and clutching to the balcony railing outside. The neighbors next door were attempting to save the youngster in the meantime.

Gassama soon began dragging himself up from balcony to balcony to climb the front of the building without pausing to consider.

Even though the fire department was still its route, he reached the youngster and pulled him to safety within seconds of approaching the building.

The crowd is heard applauding Gassama and shouting his accomplishments in the rescue in a video of it.

Additionally, Gassama, 22, received accolades from more than just the onlookers; in recognition of the heroic actions on Saturday, Gassama recently visited with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysée Palace.

Macron announced that he will grant Gassama French citizenship as a way of recognizing the Malian man’s bravery. In addition, Gassama received a bravery award and a job with the fire brigade.

Additionally praising Gassama on Twitter was the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo. She wrote: “He explained to me that he arrived from Mali a few months ago with the intention of establishing a life for himself here.

I responded by saying that his brave conduct serves as an example for all residents and that Paris will undoubtedly be eager to assist him in his quest to make France his permanent home.
