Undocumented Malian Immigrant Alias Malian Spiderman Granted French Citizenship After Heroic Rescue

An undocumented 22 year Malian immigrant Mamoudou Gassama was granted honorary French citizenship on May 28, 2018, after he heroically rescued a child hanging out from a fourth floor balcony of an apartment block in Paris, on May 27, 2018.

Mamoudou Gassama dubbed Malian Spiderman in some quarters, climbed up the building from balcony to balcony, and on reaching the fourth floor grabbed the child who was hanging out from a balcony railing, by one hand and brought him to safety.

On meeting the fearless Mamoudou Gassama in the Elysee Palace on May 28, 2018, France's President Emmanuel Macron instantly granted him a honorary French citizenship for his heroic action.

Happy ending for both the little boy and Malian Spiderman who can now enjoy the good things that go with French citizenship! It is reported he has already been offered a job by Paris fire brigade.
