PARIS (Reuters) – France has offered citizenship to an illegal immigrant from Mali who scaled the facade of a Paris apartment block to save a boy who was about to fall from a fourth-floor balcony, President Emmanuel Macron said. Mamoudou Gassama, 22, risked his life on Sunday climbing up the balconies to rescue the four-year-old who was clinging to a railing, while horrified onlookers watched. Nicknamed “Spider-Man,” Gassama was swiftly granted a meeting with Macron at the Elysee Palace. Macron said he would be given a job in the emergency services.
