The Malian man who saved a child will be "naturalized French"

This is the incredible moment that Mamoudou Gassama scaled four storeys- using just his bare hands- to rescue a young boy dangling from a balcony in Paris

Mamoudou Gassama, 22, from Mali, is pictured during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the presidential Elysee Palace in Paris, Monday, May, 28, 2018.

A real-life "Spiderman" has climbed a tall building in order to save a child who was suspending from the balcony of the fourth floor.

The footage shows Gassama, 22, single-handedly scaling the facade of a building, pulling himself up from balcony to balcony to reach in a few seconds the fourth floor, and reaching out with his right arm and hauling the dangling youngster to safety.

The video of the incident is going viral on social media. He met with Gassama at the Ely sé e Palace, promising him a French citizenship as soon as possible. France will offer residence papers to Mr Gassama, along with a job in the emergency services.

She referred to him as the "Spiderman of the 18th", referring to the Paris district where the rescue took place.

His mother was not in Paris at the time, and his father, who had apparently left the boy home alone, was questioned by authorities, a judicial source told Agence France-Presse. "Malian citizens under the threat of being expelled by the French government".

The father of the boy faces two years in prison.

"Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his act of bravery that saved the life of a child".

He told Mr Macron: "I just didn't have time to think, I ran across the road to go and save him".

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 François Hollande.

Gassama told Macron that he arrived in Italy in 2014 after more than a year in Libya, where he was arrested and beaten, "but I wasn't discouraged". "I climbed... Thank God I saved him". The forced closure of the encampments is the subject of a heated debate between the Paris mayor, who wants to ensure the uprooted will be sheltered, and Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, who was present Monday at the Elysee. I told him that in recognition of his heroic act he would have his papers in order as quickly as possible and that the Paris fire brigade would be keen to welcome him to their ranks. He said there is no disparity between rewarding Gassama for his act of bravery and holding firm on immigration.
