A Malian immigrant has found the easiest yet life-threatening way of getting genuine citizenship documents in France.
Mr. Mamoudou Gassama scaled a 5-storey apartment building to rescue a child who was dangling from the balcony. Narrating the life-changing act to President Macron, he said though he was trembling, he got the courage to climb the building as he started.
French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that 22-year-old Mamoudou Gassama will be awarded for his “exceptional act” with legal papers, citizenship if he wants it and a job with the fire service.
The astonishing footage of Mr Gassama scaling the building and rescuing the child in just 30 seconds has been shared hundreds of thousands of times on social media.
