Migrant Who Saved A Child Dangling From A Balcony Awarded French Citizenship

Mamoudou Gassama (right), 22, was hailed a hero for single-handedly scaling the facade of an apartment block in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, and hauling the four-year-old to safety. The dramatic rescue, which saw Gassama clamber from balcony to balcony and reaching the child in less than 30 seconds, was captured on video (main). He has since been compared to the Marvel superhero Spiderman. Gassama, who said he arrived in France a few months ago ‘dreaming of building his life’ in the country, was pictured meeting French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace this morning (inset). Macron said the migrant will be made a French citizen and will also be offered a place in the fire brigade.
