His mother was out of town.

Prosecutor Francois Molis explained to BFM-TV: 'His behaviour constitutes an offence, failing to honour parental responsibilities, which carries a possible sentence of two years in jail'.

A migrant who climbed four stories up a building to rescue a child dangling from a balcony has been offered a new start in France.

Gassama has now been given honorary French citizen by the French President, reports CNN.

While he went his way after the stunning rescue act, local media soon caught up with Gassama after the video of his act took social media by storm.

Gassama, who had been living in France illegally since September 2017, arriving via the Mediterranean migrant route, told President Emmanuel Macron on Monday that he "did not think twice" before springing into action. Sounds like Gassama will be putting those scaling skills to good use.

"I ran. I crossed the street to save him", Mr Gassama told Mr Macron. "I climbed.Thank God I saved him".

The family of the young boy saved by "Spiderman" Mamoudou Gassama in a daring rescue that won him global acclaim and a promise of French citizenship has thanked the Malian youth for his quick thinking. A man on the neighboring balcony emerges and leans around a partition to grasp the child.

The boy's father was reportedly detained for alleged neglect, and the child has been placed in special care.

"Bravo", Macron said to Gassama during a one-on-one meeting in a gilded room of the presidential Elysee Palace that ended with the awarding of a medal from the prefecture for "courage and devotion".

The child's rescuer, 22-year-old Gassama, was offered French citizenship and a job by the Paris fire brigade following his dramatic rescue.

Meanwhile, his 4-year-old son had slipped off the balcony and dangled precariously off the side of their building by his hands. "The more I climbed the more I had the courage to climb up higher, that's it". "The city of Paris will obviously be keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France". According to judicial sources, the child's father was out shopping when the incident occurred.

I like children. I would have hated to see him get hurt in front of me.

He added Mr Gassama had become an "example" because millions had viewed the astonishing act after footage was uploaded to Facebook. "We are ready to welcome him".
