PARIS (Reuters) – Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo on Sunday praised the heroism of a Malian immigrant who scaled the facade of a four-storey building here to save a child hanging from a ledge, saying the city will support his effort to settle in France. The video of Mamoudou Gassama’s quick climbing to reach the child, cheered on by terrified onlookers, went viral on social media, with people calling the 22-year-old a real spider man. “Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his act of bravery that saved the life of a child,” Hidalgo said on her Twitter account, adding that she spoke with him by phone to thank him.
