A Malian migrant will be granted French citizenship after he climbed up the front of a building to save a 4-year-old dangling from a Parisian balcony.

Mamoudou Gassama, 22, met with French President Emmanuel Macron Monday, so the president could thank him personally. He has also been offered a job with the Paris fire brigade, announced Macron on Twitter.

“You saved a child. Without you, no one knows what would have become of him. You need courage and the capability to do that,” Macron told the man, according to the Associated Press.

The 22-year-old, whom the Paris mayor dubbed “Spider-Man,” said he was about to watch a soccer game Saturday at a restaurant when he saw a lot of people yelling and cars honking.

Far above the crowd, a young boy was dangling from an apartment balcony.
