Residential building of Mali ‘spiderman’ heroics attracts tourists in France

The residential building where Malian Mamoudou ‘spiderman’ Gassama, scaled to save a small boy dangling from a balcony in the French capital, Paris, has become a tourist site.

A local resident identified as Chantal told AFP: “since Saturday, it hasn’t stopped, every day people have been coming to look at it themselves.”

AFP reports that its team saw crowds gathering at the site, taking photos of themselves, and expressing wonder at Gassama’s antics.

The 22-year-old migrant’s life has changed dramatically since the video of his rescue was shared online. With his admirable skills, he is set to be made a French citizen and recently began his life as a trainee fireman with the Paris service
