6 year old child missing aborad balloon

Recommended Posts

I just saw it live on spanish TV from Houston. A 6 year old child rode a ballon his father was building, and seems it missed the ties and wnet flying miles away. Moments ago, it landed, but seems,

for what i saw in the live broadcast, nothing was on the balloon. Prayers on

Confirmed, nothing aboard the balloon. Children feared to have fallen from the ballon. As choppers followed him soon since "take off", he could have gone down near home. Hope he is just hiding, as seems that nobody saw him exactly riding it. Perhaps he was playing nearby, broke the rope, and hid to prevent being chewed up. Hope so

Found safe in the house.

 

He apparently let the balloon loose and then fearing that he was going to get into trouble hid inside the house.

I saw on Fox that the kid was found in the garage attic hiding in a box. Sounds like a stunt a might have pulled. I wonder about his punishment.

they had to shut DIA down for a bit as the "craft" as the news here has been calling it got into DIA airspace... man this has been scary for me as I can feel what the parents of that boy were feeling as i have a 9 year old boy... one of my questions is why were the kids not in school.. as i write this the dad is being interviewed

Sorry guys, but this is all bullsh!t...

 

 

This is the same bunch who have already been on Wife Swap. Twice. Send the family an invoice for the money spent by emergency services on this one.

 

Next.

Holy s**te!!! I remember that show... the father is a total loon!! I recognized him when I watched the video when the balloon initally took off, and there was the father, acting all pissed off, kicking the launch frame and all.... Not the kind of reaction a concerned parent would have had. It looked kind of staged to me. They claimed there was a gondola attched to it when it rose up, but the video did not show one on it. I'd say this family is in need of some serious councelling.

 

But the wife swap was terrible. The father was a loose cannon, and constantly pissed off, acting like a little boy, whining... all of it.

 

I hope the law comes down on them for pulling this stunt. Those poor kids will all be brain cases later in life.

I don´t know how is in the USA, (or UK and Brazil) But here if you cause such effort, deployment of people and so, as regulations, you pay it either with

your money or with your work "for the society"....

....and given the circunstances, althought the child was not in danger, his parents illegally got profit from him. Perhaps the administration (i mean,the state of Colorado)

would take care of all children
