French citizenship and more for undocumented Malian over ‘Spiderman’ heroics

Francis Akhalbey May 28, 2018

Had it not been for the heroics of undocumented Malian immigrant Mamoudou Gassama, the life of a four-year-old boy would have been cut short.

In a viral video circulating on social media, Gassama can be seen without any protection whatsoever bravely climbing to the fourth floor of a building to rescue the child clinging on to his life on a balcony.

Being cheered on and encouraged by onlookers, it took him just about thirty seconds to prevent the tragedy from happening.

As a reward and appreciation for his heroics, Gassama met with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace where he confirmed he would be granted French citizenship.

He was also awarded a medal of courage and a certificate and offered a job in the fire service.
