“Real Spider-Man”: in Paris an illegal migrant climbed up to the fourth floor on the balconies and saved the child

Now he is invited to a meeting with the President of France.

In Paris, a 22-year-old Malian migrant, Mamoudou Gassama, observed that a four-year-old child hung on the balcony of one of the buildings and could at any moment break. For a few seconds the guy without insurance climbed on the facade of the house and intercepted the boy from the hands of the man who held him.

By the time the rescue services arrived, Gassam had already saved the child. His actions were removed by passers-by and published in social networks. In the media and Twitter, the Malian was nicknamed “Spider-Man” for his ability to climb so quickly on the walls.


In a conversation with the BFM TV channel, Gassam explained that he passed by the house to the restaurant to his friends to watch a football match. “I love children, and I did not want the boy to suffer. I ran and began to look for ways to save him. Thank God that I was able to climb the balconies, “he said.

French President Emmanuel Macron invited a brave young man to visit the Champs Elysee to thank him on behalf of all the French. And the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, phoned him and personally thanked him for the deed: “He moved from Mali a few months ago. Paris will support his desire to live here. ”
