Real-Life Spider-Man Climbed Up A Building To Rescue A Dangling Kid

Mamoudou Gassama was captured on video on 26 May 2018 climbing a building in Paris to save a child that was dangling over the handrail of a fourth-floor balcony. As the video depicts, it took Gassama approximately half a minute to reach the four-year-old and pull him to safety.


As Gassama told Le Parisien, according to a translation by Nine.com.au: “I did not think of the floors… I did not think of the risk. I did it because it’s a child.”


Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo referred to the 22-year-old hero as “Spider-Man of the 18th,” as the rescue took place in the city’s 18th arrondissement (district).


As Hidalgo told the Guardian: “He explained to me that he had arrived from Mali a few months ago, dreaming of building his life here. I told him that his heroic act is an example to all citizens and that the city of Paris will obviously be very keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France.”


On May 28th, French President Emmanuel Macron met with Gassama, thanked him, gave him a medal and said he'd become a naturalized citizen, per the BBC.



The kid’s parents weren’t at home during the incident. The child’s dad was held for questioning while the mother wasn't in Paris at the time, as AFP reported.
