Today millions across the nation watched in terror as an aluminum plated helium balloon floated across the skies of Eastern Colorado. The bizarre story quickly turned to horror as news reports that indicated a six-year-old child, Falcon Heene, was riding in the hot-air contraption.
15,000 feet up in the air, toward the heavens, the boy sailed like Icarus of ancient lore. As everyone wondered if Falcon would come crashing to the ground in pure disaster, Colorado immediately sent a small fleet of helicopters to try to rescue the boy. National attention and resources were devoted to the situation. What would happen to our boy?
It turns out, Falcon was home sleeping in his garage attic. And now as revealed by Larry King, his parents may have had him do it “For The Show”.
The Heene family participated in the sinful show “Wife Swap” and are known to be big proponents of allowing their kids to partake in science experiments.
You see the sorts of trouble that come from such a lifestyle.
