Superheroes do exist and one of them lives in Paris, France. A video went viral this weekend of a man scaling the side of a building to save a child dangling from a balcony. The man is now appropriately being called Spider-Man.

22-year-old Mamoudou Gassama, from Mali, said he heard people screaming and saw people gathering around the building. He quickly jumped into action climbing the building and saving the four-year-old boy who was hanging from the balcony. The original video has been shared over 245,000 times and over 10 million times on Facebook.

The boys father has been arrested. He was reportedly out shopping and left the child home alone.
