Man Climbs 4 Stories With His Bare Hands In Less Than 30 Secs To Save 4-Year-Old Dangling From Balcony

22-year-old Mamoudou Gassama was trying to build a new life in Paris. Originally from the country of Mali, the once undocumented immigrant is now hailed as a hero and a new citizen of France.

It all started on a Saturday afternoon. Mamoudou was walking home from the famous Gare du Nord railway station when he came across a panicked crowd of people looking up with terror. Above them, a 4-year-old boy was dangling from a balcony, four stories up. Without a second thought for his own safety, Mamoudou leaped into action and began to climb the building, earning him the nickname ‘Spiderman.’

“I did not think of the floors, I did not think of the risk,” he said. “I did it because it’s a child. I really like children.” Mamoudou said.

In addition to a personal ‘merci’ from President Macron, Mamoudou also received congratulations from the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, who posted on Twitter: “Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his brave act that helped save a child’s life last night. I had the pleasure to talk with him today by phone, to thank him warmly.”

It seems like Mamoudou’s selfless act has endeared him to the French nation, and will go a long way toward helping him settle in the country. “He explained to me that he arrived from Mali a few months ago while dreaming of building his life here,” Hidalgo also explained. “I replied that his heroic gesture is an example for all citizens and that the City of Paris will obviously be keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France.”

You can see Mamoudou leap into action.

He scales the 4 stories within 30 seconds!

Someone from the other side of building tries to help as well.

They pull the 4-year old to safety!

Praise God!

President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, offered Gassama citizenship for his “heroic act” in saving this four-year-old.
