Unbelievable video of a man climbing building in Paris to save a child dangling from balcony is doing rounds on social media today. People on the internet are calling him – real life Spiderman.
Mamoudou Gassama, a Malian immigrant, said he saw the child after onlookers were screaming, and he immediately sprang into action to save him. “I did it because it was a child,” he told a french newspaper. “I climbed … thank God I saved him.”
Straight outta superhero film, he scaled four storeys of the building in under 40 seconds and saved the child hanging from a balcony, while the crowd cheered for him.
Watch the goosebumps inducing video here:
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo took it to Twitter to praise his heroic effort. “Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his act of bravery that saved the life of a child.” He also offered him French Citizenship if he wishes to settle in France.
If this doesn’t restore your faith in humanity, I don’t know what will.
