PARIS, May 28 (Reuters) - France will give residence papers to an illegal immigrant from Mali who scaled the facade of a Paris apartment block to save a boy who was about to fall from a fourth-floor balcony, President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday.

Video shows Mamoudou Gassama, 22, risking his life on Sunday as he climbed up the balconies to rescue the four-year-old who is clinging to a railing and glancing at the ground below, while horrified onlookers watched.

The video went viral and Gassama, who has been nicknamed "Spider-Man" for conducting the rescue in less than a minute, was swiftly granted a meeting at the Elysee Palace.

"This is an exceptional act," Macron told Gassama. "We'll obviously be setting all your papers straight and if you wish it, we will start the process naturalization so that you can become French," he added.


It was also reported that he has been approached by the Fire Dept offering him a job. Of course, here in the US, ICE would have arrested him and deported him immediately.
