"Spiderman" saves toddler in Paris .......

by Banana Crumble | May 31, 2018

Mamoudou Gassama, an immigrant originally from Mali has been hailed a hero in Paris. The young man scaled four flours to reach a four year old child who was hanging from a fourth floor balcony. The rescue took place in Northern Paris last Saturday evening. Footage of the 22 year old rescuer pulling himself up from balcony to balcony has gone viral.

Firefighters had been called to the incident but by the time they had arrived the child had already been rescued. The city officials have praised his bravery and he was even invited to meet the French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace.

Gassama is a migrant with no papers and has no right to housing, a job or even to remain in France. The French President has promised him documents allowing him to stay and a job with the city’s fire and emergency service. The young migrant was also awarded a bravery medal.

The child’s father was detained on charges of alleged parental neglect.

Gassama said that he acted on impulse and didn’t realise how dangerous his actions were until he had rescued the child. All’s well that ends well. Certainly. a hero in our eyes!!

So many ways to say thank you
