Child Caught in Experimental Aircraft Over Colorado, USA

Link: http://edition.cnn.com/2009/US/10/15/colorado.boy.balloon/index.html

That's scary, a six year old boy is caught up in his parent's experimental aircraft and floating 7,000 ft. above ground over Colorado. This is happening right now as of Thursday, 10/15/2009.


Edit: I misspelled *Breaking* darn those quick fingers. >.>

****Update: LOL....Apparently officials got the ballon down, but there's no child!!!! The older brother said the last time he saw his little brother was when the little brother climbed into the air craft. Now the next step is trying to find where the little boy went?

****2nd Update: Oh my gosh! The kid was found! He was hiding inside the house. I wonder if the family did this to get publicity? >.>

I hope he's alive. I've been looking at the twitter updates and they're hilarious. It's funny and sad at the same time.

This is so huge on twitter right now haha
I hope he's okay.
But I'm beginning to get the feeling that it might have been a hoax.
Or aliens.



EDIT:
Best Tweet I've seen so far:

YO FALCON, IM HAPPY FOR YOU & IMMA LET YOU FINISH, BUT RUSSELL FROM UP WAS THE BEST #BALLOONBOY OF ALL TIME!


I JUST DIED. BAHAHHAHAHA.


who names their kid Falcon anyway? If you name him that, he's obviously going to fly away!

LOL at the last edit. When my brother was 2 we went on a looking spree for 4 hours trying to find him. Searched outside, schools, called our neighbors to help. Found him 4 hours later inside the house hiding in the laundry basket.
My parents felt so bad for wasting so much time, and wasting other people's time as well.

Makes me wonder how much shit the little boy's parents must feel like now. They panicked for no reason, got the media involved, and everything. Someone probably got major beats that night

Yo Balloon Boy, I'm a let you finish, but Anne Frank had the best attic hideout spot of all time!
sorry, I couldn't help myself, I'm addicted to twitter :/

and uhh... parent failure, police failure...
parent failure: WATCH YOUR KIDS, DAMNIT.
police failure: Don't take the word of an eight year old boy who says that his little brother is floating away in a slightly oversized helium balloon. UHHHHHHHHHHHHH? obviously!

His parents were on wife swap though. I think that explains a lot

hahahaaaahaha
