'Hero' Malian migrant granted French citizenship

The four-year-old was filmed hanging on for his life outside an apartment on Rue Marx Dormoy on Saturday afternoon having been apparently left home alone while his father was out shopping

His return to the apartment was delayed when he chose to start playing the smartphone game on the way back. The mother was out of town, while the child's father was reportedly out shopping.

Immigrant from Mali to Mamadou Gassama, who saved the baby in Paris, received at the Elysee Palace, the President of France Emmanuel macron.

The Mali migrant has been offered French citizenship.

The father has been charged with "failure to meet parental obligations" and could face up to two years in prison if found guilty at trial, which is now scheduled for September. He's now scheduled to be sentenced in September according to a statement from Paris prosecutor spokesman Bruno Badre that was obtained by CNN.

On Tuesday, the boy - who was placed in temporary care after the incident - was reunited with his dad.

During their meeting, Macron praised Gassama for his bravery, and then offered him papers that will allow him to live legally in France, as well as citizenship if he wants it. Gassama even has what sounds like a job offer in France now, with the Paris firefighters brigade.

Walking on the street, he saw a crowd gathered below a building, screaming and gesturing upward on the rue Marx-Dormoy.

Champions League Final: Gareth Bale's Real Madrid Expectations 'Blown Out Of Water'
I have played in three and this could be a fourth win, it has blown any expectations I had out of the water". Mark Ogden is a senior football writer for ESPN FC.

"I did it because it was a child. I enjoyed talking with him today by phone, to thank him warmly", wrote Hidalgo. He quickly reaches the fourth floor and helps get the child to safety with people that are on the other balcony.

Sorry Tom Holland, but I think you've been usurped.

Dressed in tattered blue jeans and white shirt, the young man recounted for the president what took place after he and some friends saw a young child hanging from a fifth-floor balcony.

Video showed him being cheered on by spectators as pulled himself from balcony to balcony to the fourth floor. He reaches across and grabs hold of the child.

The father of the young boy who almost fell to his death from a fourth-floor Paris balcony has been arrested after leaving his apartment to play Pokémon Go. "I replied that his heroic act is an example for all citizens and that the city of Paris will obviously be keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France", Hidalgo said. He personally thanked him, gave him a medal for courage, and said he would also be made a fireman.

Macron is behind a bill toughening French immigration law, and he stressed there is no contradiction between rewarding Gassama for his act of bravery and working to prevent migrants from entering France illegally by stopping the stream of arrivals at its source.

Mr Gassama is said to have arrived in France a year ago, taking the long and unsafe journey to Europe via a boat over the Mediterranean to Italy.
