  • It has been ten years since the 'Balloon Boy' hoax. This hoax was when a father in Fort Collins made a bogus 911 call claiming his six-year-old son climbed into a homemade weather balloon and flew away. Now ten years later that boy, Falcon Heene, talks to us about this special occasion. #FredWillard

    The fact they still consider this a hoax shows how little media cares for the truth

    This is tragic, this family's life was ruined because they where in a panic that there son could have been in a life threatening situation. Anyone who actually wants to hear more than a few punchy head lines and jokes about this story should watch Internet Historian's multiple videos on it. Including one where the father presents evidence that shows police falsified testimonials and questioned the children without permission.

            Back in my day, we didn’t have click bait.

            If you wanted everyone’s attention you had to pretend to send your kid off in a crappy run away hot air balloon.

              Watch Internet Historian's video about the Balloon Boy. You might find it interesting especially concerning matters of corruption in the legal system.

              If you could all please watch the video Internet Historian made on Balloon Boy that would be great since it basically proves the Heenes innocent & that they we're forced to claim it was a hoax.

                      Almost humorous but it legit wasn't a hoax. Internet Historian please. Geez, you guys suck. Imagine looking back at something from 10 years ago in the same surface-level way as you did before.

                                There is actually evidence that he was set up and was telling the truth when he said he actually believed, at the time that his son was in the balloon.

I understand the jokes and such on his father, but damn. If I was Falcon and saw this, I'd probably break down. No telling what he has gone through because of the hoax. Jimmy youre usually better than this!

The channel Internet Historian did a video on the subject "Balloon Boy the untold story" that is quite complete. Richard Heene even responded with a video. i really recommend this video if you want to learn more on this event (and the bonus video on the second channel)

                                                                                      No one is claiming that it could. Falcon weighed 37lbs at the time (as weighed by the police themselves). The materials (plastic, aluminum foil, cardboard, plywood, duct tape, wire, strings and tether) weighed a total of approximately 13.88 lbs. So the craft with Falcon on board would have weighed approximately 51.88 lbs total.
                                                                                      On the other hand, Helium has 0.069 lbs of lift per cubic foot. The total volume of the craft was 942.48 feet cubed. So 942.48 x 0.069 = 65.03112.
                                                                                      65.03112 - 51.88 = 13.15112...So the craft could have lifted Falcon with over 13lbs to spare. Even if it couldn't, what is being contested isn't whether or not the balloon actually did lift Falcon, but whether his parents *believed* it had.

                                                                                      • Matt

                                                                                        I'd encourage everyone to go an watch the original video. The attention to detail and authenticity of the "actors" was pretty realistic for an elaborate "hoax" perpetrated by a middle-class-ish family in an elaborate scheme to maybe get a reality TV show made out of it. Speaking of, to call this motive reaching would be an understatement. Surely if it was indeed a hoax, the Heene's would have had to have anticipated the media would have caught wind eventually that Falcon was never on board. At which point...then what? It was negligent of the Heene's not to ensure Falcon wasn't on board before liftoff...but a single act of negligence, however serious, is hardly enough to warrant a recurring TV show. Furthermore, why weren't the police able to come up with any evidence of intent from the children nor their electronics and documents?

He explained in a later interview that a reporter had asked him how he had gotten into the attic. When he replied "You guys said...we did this for the show", he thought his parents were asking him why he showed the reporter the attic. Granted, it's a pretty flimsy excuse, but this is also a six year old we're talking about.
