‘Malian Spiderman’ Honoured At BET Awards for his Heroic Acts In France (View Photos)

Mamoudou Gassama, the Malian immigrant who scaled an apartment building in Paris to save the life of a dangling 4-year-old last month, was honoured at the 2018 BET Awards at Microsoft Theater on Sunday night in Los Angeles, California.

The 22-year-old received a humanitarian award alongside Anthony Borges, James Shaw Jr., Justin Blackman, Naomi Wadler, and Shaun King.

The Malian “Spider-Man”  as he is now called, has since been granted a French citizenship by French President Emmanuel Macron, and was also offered an enrollment to be a firefighter at the French fire service with a pay of  600 euros monthly for his humanitarian gesture. He recently returned back to Mali and was given a heroic welcome as well.
