Mamoudou Gassama, a 22 years old Malian who just arrived in Paris not too long became Africa-Spider man when he saw a baby dangling from a balcony fourth floor. His natural instinct and skills kicks in, not thinking twice about exposing his immigration status as undocumented or fear of deportation. He sprung into action by scaling over the building front gate, ran to the first balcony and started climbing from one balcony to the other until he got to the baby on the fourth floor. He pulls the baby back with one hand to fourth balcony to save the baby’s life.

What a heroic action and intervention from him, his fitness skills and talent which he displayed before the world had made room for him. His heroic action has gone viral, he was invited by French President Emmanuel Macron, who thanked him for his quick saving action, President Macron gave him a certificate, granted him citizenship and a job offer from Paris Fire Brigade and the Mayor of Paris has also said they will help Mamoudou to settle down comfortably in Paris.
