Dad was playing Pokemon while French 'Spider-Man' saved tot

Daring man scales building to rescue dangling child

Mamoudou Gassama scales the outside of the building to reach the child.

The boy's parents were not home at the time, and his father has been questioned by police after it was claimed he left his child unattended at home.

A Malian migrant living in France illegally is being dubbed "Spider-Man" and hailed as a hero after scaling a Paris apartment bloc to save a young boy dangling perilously from a fourth-floor balcony. He was an undocumented immigrant, and French authorities had the power to grant him citizenship in exceptional cases.

"His behaviour constitutes an offence, failing to honour parental responsibilities, which carries a possible sentence of two years in jail", Molins said. He's now scheduled to be sentenced in September according to a statement from Paris prosecutor spokesman Bruno Badre that was obtained by CNN.

Badre told CNN Tuesday that the boy had been placed in temporary care while the father was in custody, but the two have now been reunited.

Mamoundou Gassama has been offered citizenship by French President Emmanuel Macron after a video of him rescuing a 4-year-old boy dangling from a balcony emerged online.

Walking on the street, he saw a crowd gathered below a building, screaming and gesturing upward on the rue Marx-Dormoy.

"I like children, I would have hated to see him getting hurt in front of me".

Boston Celtics: Game 7 will be the Jayson Tatum show
Before you tell me: Yes, the Celtics came within one win of the NBA Finals without both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. Smith came through for the team as they scored 19 and 12 points, respectively. "I just know he's built for stardom".

"I did not think, I saved him", he said.

He grabbed the child with the help of a resident next door.

A man on the fourth floor was leaning across another balcony struggling to hold on to the child. And because he's a badass who literally saved the life of a child at great danger to himself, that's about to change.

Malian saved the boy fell from the window.

"I wanted to act carefully above all and I certainly did not want to risk the child's life", he said. He personally thanked him, gave him a medal for courage, and said he would also be made a fireman. "The more I climbed the more I had the courage to climb up higher, that's it", he added.

Gassama's actions did not go unnoticed by French President Emmanuel Macron, who invited the hero on Monday to become a "naturalized Frenchman" and to work for the fire department, according to AFP.

Gassama spoke to Macron about the rescue and about his hard journey to France from his home country Mali.
