This is Malian migrant, Mamoudo Gassama. This hero climbed a Paris apartment complex in a matter of seconds to save a 4-year old child who was holding onto the balcony he was hanging from for dear life. With not thought for his own safety or well-being, Gassama jumped into action. With the help from a resident in a neighboring apartment, Gassama was able to get to the child and pull him in before he fell. Gassama’s brave actions did not go unnoticed. He was praised by the public, and also caught the attention of French President Emmanuel Macron. The President personally thanked Gassama and said he would be naturalized and made a citizen of France. Macron also offered Gassma a role in the fire service.
