OMG:Real-Life Spider-Man Scrambles Up Building To Save A Dangling Child--Immigrant hero

AMAZING! Please watch:
Real-Life Spider-Man Scrambles Up Building To Save A Dangling Child
Hero immigrant to become French citizen for his selfless act.



He’s being hailed as a real-life Spider-Man.

Mamoudou Gassama was caught on video on Saturday climbing a building in Paris to rescue a child who was dangling from a fourth-floor balcony. As the footage above shows, it took Gassama about half a minute to reach the 4-year-old and pull him to safety.

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

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

“He explained to me that he had arrived from Mali a few months ago, dreaming of building his life here,” Hidalgo told the Guardian. “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.”

7. Trump and Nielsen would have had him deported

Anyone who can climb like that must have learned it by being a burglar, after all.........

8. People from shithole countries do amazing things

In America, our president would have him deported anyway.

9. Macron granted him French citizenship this morning.

Unlike Traitor Tot. He'd probably be cooling his heels in an ICE prison if he had done that here.
