    Happy news alert: Mamoudou Gassama – otherwise known as ‘Le Spiderman’ of that miraculous balcony rescue that you may remember – just had his first day on the job at the Paris Fire Brigade https://t.co/4cltN3xTMR

    The clip of him quickly climbing up these balconies boggles the mind even after watching it several times.

    Gassama received his French citizenship soon after his heroics. This type of recognition is extremely well deserved.
