Mamoudou Gassama, 'Spider-Man' Who Saved Dangling Child, Joins Paris Fire Brigade
He was pictured with the organization's 24 new recruits.
The 22-year-old Malian migrant was awarded French citizenship in May after he was captured on video climbing up several balconies in Paris to rescue a child dangling from a balcony.
As a result of his heroic actions, Gassama was dubbed "Spider-Man," met with President Emanuel Macron and was given a spot on the Paris Fire Brigade.
In a photo tweeted by the fire brigade Thursday, he can be seen among the organization's new recruits.
Gassama was reportedly in the neighborhood on the day of the rescue to watch a soccer match when he heard screams from outside and jumped into action, quickly realizing the dire situation. He scaled several balconies and pulled the boy to safety.
"I did not really think — I started climbing directly," Gassama reportedly told Macron during their meeting. "As I was climbing up, I felt more and more confident."
Thankfully the child only suffered minor injuries.
