The 22-year-old from the North African country of Mali scaled a Paris building on Saturday and saved a baby’s life. Due to his bravery, French President Emmanuel Macron will make him a French citizen and he will be offered a job by the fire brigade.

ABC News reports the father of the 4-year-old boy left his child alone to go grocery shopping. After he was done shopping, he stupidly decided to play the smartphone game Pokémon Go.  The child’s mother was not home either, she was reportedly visiting family members at France’s Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean. reports the four-year climbed over the first balcony and then dropped approximately 15 feet to another ledge below, which was where he was saved by Gassamma.

Paris prosecutor François Molins told the BFM television that the father was charged with “failure to meet parental obligations.” Although he was released after being questioned by authorities, his trial will be in September and he is facing up to two years in prison. Molins said about the father, “He is devastated because he realizes what he did, and the tragic consequences that it could have led to.”

On another note, it is great to see Gassama receive this type of praise and respect. North African immigrants in Paris endure tremendous amounts racism and bias. Despite being upwardly mobile, as Citizen Outsider reports, they are often paid less and face hate crimes. In 2016, the Human Rights Watch issued a “state of Emergency” for North Africans in Paris.
