Super hero

A marvellously uplifting performance
making someone feel better

Mamoudou Gassama is a Malian man who became known as the “Spider-Man of Paris” after he scaled a building to rescue a child who was dangling from a balcony in May 2018. Here are some key points about him:

  1. Gassama was born on January 31, 1996, in Yaguine, a village in Mali.

  2. He moved to France in September 2017, and was living in a hostel for migrants in the north of Paris at the time of the rescue.

  3. On May 26, 2018, Gassama saw a young child dangling from a balcony on the fourth floor of an apartment building in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Without hesitation, he climbed up the building’s facade to reach the child and pull him to safety.

  4. Gassama’s heroic act was captured on video and quickly went viral on social media, making him an overnight sensation.

  5. French President Emmanuel Macron invited Gassama to the Elysée Palace and granted him French citizenship. He was also offered a job as a firefighter in Paris.

  6. Gassama has since become a symbol of the struggles and bravery of undocumented immigrants in France, and has been praised for his courage and selflessness.

In the 30 seconds it took him to scale four storeys of a Paris apartment building to rescue a dangling child, Malian migrant Mamoudou Gassama went from being completely unknown in his adoptive France to becoming its national hero. His unlikely path to citizenship has earned him broad acclaim even as it sheds light on the desperate hope of so many like him to find a way to permanent residency and a new life in Europe.

All Things Appreciated
he didn’t do it for papers but to save life. am sure he was not thinking about it. who thinks like that in that short time. it’s a disgrace for anyone to think that they would do same thing to get papers as well.

If it’s true that the boy had already tumbled down an entire floor before he managed to grab onto the fifth floor’s metal railing, then the real spider-man in this story is the 4-year-old with the iron grip that enabled him to catch himself as he fell what looks like 6 or 7 feet. Probably not impossible, but extremely hard to believe. Think about it.

Good bless him and he’s family for saving..now blacks will be respected in france wowwwww! one hero another one is on the way coming
Tou Sue Vuelta and I

How can he be so brave without thinking about the safety of his own life?!
Jill LOvesJack
so sad that our skin colour still plays such a huge role in how people perceive us and react to us. When we donate blood it is not separated by race. By now skin colour should not be the defining factor in a person’s life. Thank you for being a good human beating who acted without to delay to help another person. You make me feel proud, brother.

Black sun rising, u don’t need to keep crying just for the few millions Euro ( dollars ) and job, and French citizen and fame, that the 22 yrs old already has already. U know bro, the more u cry the more the world richest men, women and stars, and presidents are offering him more$$ and the more he will be getting closer to a billionaire. God’s/ Jesu’s opinion. Have a wonderful day!
Mas Moi
Thank God this happened somewhere outside the USA, otherwise butt tramp would have deported him. God bless this young man n that God put him there n not here.
