'Spider-Man' Scales Building To Save Dangling Child; Macron Offers Him Citizenship
By Laurel Wamsley
A four-year-old dangled from the fifth-floor balcony of an apartment building in Paris. As people below watched in terror, one man sprung to action.
Mamoudou Gassama, a 22-year-old immigrant from Mali, began scaling the building, hoisting himself from balcony to balcony. A man on the neighboring balcony emerges and leans around a partition to grasp the child.
Gassama reaches the child and lifts him to safety — even as he is still astride the balcony.
