Scaled 5 floors to Citizenship!! Mamoudou Gassama rescues baby by climbing skyscraper with bare hands

Saturday, in a suburb north of Paris, Mamoudou Gassama, 22-year-old looked up to the fifth story of an apartment complex where a small boy was dangling from a balcony

.

The boy, who is believed to have been left at home alone, was rescued when Gassama scaled the outside of the building with his bare hands.

Another man leaning across from an adjacent balcony did his best to hold the boy with one arm before Gassama pulled him back to solid ground.

Footage of the rescue, which took place shortly before 8pm local time, went viral on Sunday and led many to label the hero “Paris Spiderman”
