‘African Spiderman’ Begins Training With French Fire Brigade, To Earn 600 Euros Monthly

22-year-old Mamoudou Gassama, the Malian immigrant who scaled an apartment building in Paris to save the life of a dangling 4-year-old, has joined the French Fire Brigade after he was rewarded for his brave act.

TORI News had earlier reported that during a meeting, the French President, Emmanuel Macron, granted the hero “African Spiderman” French citizenship and was offered to an enrollment to be a firefighter at the French Fire Service.

On Tuesday, Gassama visited the Paris Fire Brigade headquarters and Champerret fire station and also met with the Paris fire brigade commander general, Jean-Claude Gallet.

The athletic Malian received his temporary residence permit at the prefecture of Bobigny, northeast of Paris and reportedly signed up for a 10-month internship with the Paris fire and rescue services, and is expected to be paid close to 600 Euros (N251,471.10) a month.
