HE CLIMBS 4 STOREYS TO REACH A CHILD ON BALCONY. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?


In what is being called the spiderman act, 22 year old Mamoudou Gassama reportedly took seconds to reach a child hanging off a balcony 4 storeys high.

The young Malian who entered France some months back proclaimed: “I saw all these people shouting , and cars sounding their horns . I climbed up like that and thank God , I saved the child.
“I was not thinking of anything. I went straight up”, Gassama, who wore jeans and a short-sleeved patterned shirt, told Macron, recounting the episode.
“Bravo,” Macron replied.




He said that the boy was crying when he hauled him to safety and had also suffered an injured foot.

The incident occurred around 8: 00 pm ( 1800 GMT ) on Saturday in northern Paris .
Motion pictures of the rescue captured Gassama , 22 , pulling himself up from balcony to balcony with his bare hands as a man on the fourth floor tried to hold on to the child by leaning across from a neighbouring balcony .
On reaching the fourth - floor Gassama put one leg over the balcony before reaching out with his right arm to grab the child .
By the time Firefighters arrived the scene, the child had already been rescued.




According to initial inquiries by the authorities , the child’ s parents were not at home at the time .
The father was later held for questioning by police for having left his child unattended and was due in court later, a judicial source said . The child ’s mother was not in Paris at the time .

President of France, Emmanuel Macron who invited Gassama to the Elysee Palace on Monday has said Gassama will be made a naturalised citizen.
He personally thanked Gassama and gave him a medal for courage.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo was among those to praise the 22-year-old's heroism and said she had called him to thank him.
She referred to him as the "Spiderman of the 18th", referring to the Paris district where the rescue took place, calling him an "example for all citizens".



Mr Gassama's four-storey dash is a reminder of another Malian hero who gained national prominence in January 2015 during an extremist attack on a Jewish supermarket in Paris.
A young Malian employee, Lassana Bathily, was credited with saving the lives of six hostages including a baby when he led them to a safe hiding place, escaped, then directed gendarmes to their rescue.
Two weeks later - after six years of struggling to secure legal residency in France - Mr Bathily was given a medal and a French passport by then President Fran├žois Hollande.
In 2016, he wrote a book ''Je ne suis pas un heros'' (I am no hero) and created a charity whose first project was to provide irrigation for his home village in western Mali.
