I don’t think the kid made it! We won’t know until the family is notified, but after the cops had deflated the balloon and did not remove anyone, the guy who was filming said to the copter pilot “let’s go and look for it", the camera man said "OH!", after some response he got! The just kept filming after that.

I noticed that, as well. I was flipping between Fox and MSNBC, and Fox reporter was told they were to "go to studio shot", or something along those lines. Meaning, they didn't want to show something (possibly) devastating on live tv. This was right after the guys on the ground looked like they were 'shooing' the helicopters away.

My first thought was, "he didn't make it" and they must have seen 'something' (body, or ?) that lead them to this conclusion.

All so weird.

If your going to build a makeshift ufo, do it right, don't use a balloon. Oh and don't make your kid the test pilot.

As a father of a 6-year old boy, watching the footage of that balloon at ~5000 feet thinking of a child inside made me want to vomit.

Then I got frustrated: Why has that balloon been in the air for over 30 minutes with folks only "considering options?" If it was my child, I would have been chasing the damned thing in my truck like a panicked freak, all the while hoping people were taking action, not just waiting for it to come down. Near-freezing temperatures, high winds, thin air. . .a kid won't last long in those conditions.

Now that we are pretty sure he was never in it, folks are gonna just say "Whew, thank God."

I'm saying "Where was the rescue effort? Were the official agencies holding back because they were afraid a rescue would fail and didn't want to risk liability? Isn't a failed effort better than no effort?"

Hopefully he's okay, but today I'm a little disappointed in our heroes.

an interview from a neighbor who said two of the brothers were on top of the roof with a camera watching or filming it fly away, told the neighbor their brother was in it.

who's watching these kids?

Poor little guy.

Thanks for clarification. I'm hoping beyond hope that the intelligent hypothesis being put forward by some that the kid released the balloon by accident, then fled, is true.

(I just don't understand how the statements about what his brother saw fit in to that scenario, though.)

You didn't pay much attention. They were chasing the balloon, etc. Just what can they do.

Dad is an idiot for the way the balloon was handled in his yard.

I watched every second of the touch down and although the live camera angle didn't show the side of the balloon with the door it would have been imposible for the ground safety crew to get the kid out of camera range without editing the feed live

there wasn't anyone in the balloon becuase i believe the basket deteached early in the flight

Where WAS the rescue effort?

It is a very relevant question.

I hope you are wrong about people fearing liability more than the fate of the child we all presumed was in the balloon.....

UPDATE: We just heard on a police scanner that the boy is not inside the balloon. The balloon was in the air for over two hours -- no one knows where the boy is. Cops say they checked the house, and an area where people reported seeing something fall out of the balloon ... nada.


Another trajic case of bad parenting.

While watching Fox News, did anyone see that news presenter say, after the balloon was found to have no kid inside, something along the lines of:

".. And people are reading things from various websites about what is happening in regards to this boy. You cannot really trust some of them unlike us where we source what we know, double-source it, and triple-source it to bring you accurate information. So you can trust what is told by us, while their information may not be accurate."

Er, what? I have more trust in the regularity of my daily dump than anything that Fox News tells me.

While the balloon was still in the air, I heard Shepard Smith say that the National Guard was in the process of developing a rescue operation. I imagine that this isn't something they could just rappel into/onto.

Also, to note, the altitude they mention is feet above sea level, not above the ground. Although that still placed the balloon between 2000 to 3000 ft. at it's height...plenty high enough to cause grave bodily harm if met with gravity.

If the brothers were actually taking pictures, get them developed for clues.

All of the news channels were saying the same thing when Michael Jackson died.

It's just old media competing with new media for the right to lie, manufacture and manipulate.

Theres an ambulance on the ground I think it was being followed by a police truck.

Nothing new being reported.

I don't see any openings on that balloon, so how did that boy get inside?

One neighbor said all three boys were on the roof with a camera. So where were these parents?
