Just something interesting I noticed-CNN.com just updated their story to remove the quote about it being a "home-made flying saucer".

Curious....

It's live on BBC News now in the United Kingdom.

Poor child ... fingers crossed he'll come through unscathed.

Im watching CNN, I really wish they wouldnt say stuuf like that. The way the balloon is floating it sure looks unstable and bounceing around like there isnt much weight under the balloon. I hope that this doesnt turn out to be a hoax. But I really hope that the boy didnt fallout.


I don't like the looks of that collapsed side.

Well this may be geting intresting. They are talking about sending a helicoptor, and having a guy repel down and attach weights to the balloon or something.

Man, this is crazy, they don't know if the kid's in there or fell out. There's got to be some kind of visual technology where they can look in and see if he's in there or not?

Peace

said on MSNBC that the reason its wobbling alot at times is because the kid is moving around, making it wobble

Listening on my Police Scanner on my BBerry Bold.

The parents have to feel mighty bad right now. May God be with their family.

There's really no way to do anything?

What I want to know is, with the trillions spent on military, homeland security, and 250 million dollar planes. How is it they can't bring down a 20 foot balloon?

So does this mean if a terrorist wants to hit a city they can just use a hot air balloon?

I know they are trying to not kill the child, but I am sure they have practised keeping the perp alive sessions too.

I'm sure I heard International Guard and it surprised me because police spokespersons are usually trained for these types of situations.

Anyway. Its not important.

The safety of the kid is paramount.

Best case scenario is he jumped out earlier and is okay.

They have not confirmed that the kid is definately in the balloon.

I pray hes alright.

Oh, taking it down is not a problem...hell, one sniper can take it down real quick.

there is however one slight problem with that........

I guarantee bringing it down is not a problem-it's the life of the 6 year old that makes it tough.

The compartment is supposedly made of plywood-not exactly build to withstand a crash...

I don't know if the military/police practice a "take down the homemade UFO without killing the occupants" drill very often. This whole situation is an oddity of sorts.

Oh boy, CNN just made the Roswell connection.

Hopefully we will find out that the kid was never in there and is just hideing ccause he was scared that he lost his dads prized ufo balloon. Would really be the best case. Also its down to 400ft.
