As you can see in the video, Gassama did not hesitate to take the fastest way. He used his bare hands to climb the facade of the building, quickly making his way up.

“We came here to watch the game at the Greek restaurant, I saw a lot of people screaming, cars honking, I went out, I looked at the child who was going to fall from the balcony, ” Gassama said in an interview on BFM TV.

“I climbed on the balcony, I climbed on the door, I got to catch the balcony upstairs, I climbed like this, and thank God I saved it,” the 22-year-old Gassama said, who had just arrived in Paris from Mali a few months ago, and has now has become a superhero.

The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, praised and called him the “Spiderman of the 18th,” a reference to the district within Paris where the incident took place.

Hidalgo also tweeted that the City of Paris would “obviously want to support him in his steps to settle in France.”

“He explained to me that he arrived from Mali a few months ago while dreaming of building his life here. I replied that his heroic gesture is an example for all citizens and that the City of Paris will obviously be keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France,” as translated from French to English.
