Oct 15 - 6 Year Old Boy Floats Away in Hot Air Baloon......Updated: Kid Found Alive
 

 
6-Year-Old Boy Floats Away in Hot-Air Balloon!!!


FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A 6-year-old boy climbed into a hot-air balloon aircraft and floated away Thursday, forcing officials to scramble to figure out how to rescue the boy.

Larimer County sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella says the device, which is shaped like a flying saucer, has the potential to rise to 10,000 feet. Sheriff's officials last saw the device floating south of Milliken, which is about 40 miles north of Denver.

Campanella says the 6-year-old climbed into the access door and was in the airborne device.

FAA spokesman Mike Fergus says the agency has been notified and it was unclear whether traffic controllers had picked it up on radar.

Additional details were not immediately available.

Boy, 6, found alive after hot-air balloon drama


By Jeanie Stokes (AFP) – 4 hours ago

FORT COLLINS, Colorado — A six-year-old Colorado boy feared to have floated to his death on a home-made helium balloon was found alive Thursday, ending a fleeting drama that captivated the nation.

Falcon Heene was found hiding in a cardboard box in the attic of the garage at his family's home in Fort Collins, outside Denver, roughly four hours after his brother told police he had climbed into the balloon and taken off.

The story dominated US television networks, which followed the progress of the runaway flying saucer-shaped balloon as it drifted thousands of feet into the atmosphere before making a soft landing two hours later.

Authorities began fearing the worst after the craft was found to be empty after it landed. Local media reports cited witnesses who reported seeing an unidentified object fall from the balloon during its flight.

But fears of a tragic ending to the story evaporated after Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden received a call from an officer during a briefing with reporters -- Falcon had been found alive.

"The boy's been there all the time. He's been hiding in a cardboard box in the attic above the garage," a beaming Alderden told reporters.

"I don't want to make a conjecture, but this is not the first time when we have been involved in searching for some child and once the child realizes people are looking for them, they hide because they're afraid they're going to get in trouble," he added.

Alderden said police had questioned the brother several times about what he had seen shortly before the balloon drifted away.

"What he said was that he saw his brother climb into that apparatus and he was very adamant, they interviewed him multiple times and that was his consistent story," Alderden said.

"I can't tell you how many times this has happened over the course of my career. I think the thing that was confusing is that we had the eyewitness that said that he climbed into this apparatus, which clearly was not the case."

A sheepish Falcon later appeared before a scrum of journalists outside the family home alongside his father, Richard, mother, Mayumi, and two brothers, Brad 10 and Ryo 8.

Richard Heene, a keen amateur scientist who spends his spare time studying storms, clouds and weather patterns, told reporters his son had hidden after an argument shortly before the balloon took off.

"He said he was hiding because I yelled at him," Heene said, before turning to Falcon and apologizing: "I'm really sorry I yelled at you."

Asked if he would consider grounding his son, Heene replied: "We don't ground our children. But we are going to talk to him."

Heene would not say whether he planned to give up his balloon experiments. "I really have to sit down and talk to my family about it," he said, describing the craft as "like something out of 'The Jetsons.'"

Heene once appeared on ABC's reality television show "Wife Swap" where he was described as the patriarch of a "storm-chasing, science-obsessed family."

The Denver Post reported that the Heene family often went hunting storms togther. Mayumi Heene said her children "really had fun" on the excursions.

"They get so much more that they can't get from any other entertainment," she told the paper. Richard Heene, meanwhile, told the paper that his children reveled in the thrill of stalking tornados.

"I think I have odd kids. They start screaming with excitement," Richard Heene was quoted by the paper as saying.
