Boy Floats Away in Air Balloon

http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/21306839/detail.html

I’ve been following that story…I hope that little boy is ok!

Hope that the boy’s just hiding from the search parties because he doesn’t want his parents finding out, or something harmless on those lines.

But on the lighter side, think that the movie UP is going to be the scapegoat for this dilemna?

Really hoping the kid bailed when it wasn’t too high. If he died, the parents will never forgive themselves.

AHAHAHAHAHA wasnt a very good movie =\

the kid definately didnt get in the balloon. The kid is part asian so ipso facto half ninja so they will never find him until he wants to be found

The latest, of unknown accuracy, is:

LARIMER COUNTY - While authorities search for a 6-year-old boy who was believed to be inside an experimental aircraft when it lifted off, investigators now say there was no basket on the balloon when it took off from his Fort Collins home.

The boy’s brother had told authorities the 6-year-old was in the aircraft when it lifted off.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office says when the balloon made an apparent soft landing northeast of Denver International Airport on Thursday afternoon, it was in the same condition as when it took off on Thursday morning and no boy was inside the balloon.

Crews are now organizing for a search of a park southeast of the boy’s home.

The kid was hiding in a box in the attic because he let the balloon free and didn’t want to get in trouble!!

Poor guy.

i read that the balloon landed and the boy was not inside of it. hopefully they find him sleeping out back or something.

That was one expensive and frightening lie his brother told.

Yeah, he was found safe, hiding.

Wolf Blitzer isn’t very good with Colorado geography.

I would want to strangle and hug that kid all at the same time! If he was mine anyway…

what are the chances, this was all a complete hoax and parents were in on it? just wait

its sad that due to all the shit that people pull now a days that is someones first thought instead of “wow im glad the kid was found alive and ok.” no offense to you just pointing out fucked up things are becoming.

why the fuck would you build that shit in the first place?

Not an unreasonable theory in light of the fact that the family had already been on TV before. Maybe they want another 15 minutes of fame.

The hoax theory plays out.

they asked the kid(the family asked) on a tv show why he didnt come out from under the attic when he heard them yelling…

and the kid said " cuz… you said it was for tv show " <-- i just watched it… for real…

fucking family…
