1 Balloon Boy - the latest big hoax (145 pics + 6 videos)


Let’s talk about something that sounded exactly like parent’s worst nightmare but ended to be a simple hoax that is now just another Internet meme, one of the quickest actually…

Here is the story: A 6 year-old boy named Falcon Heene was flying trapped in a helium-filled balloon which was supposed to hover only 20ft above the ground, but took off.
Well, that’s what people thought, but it turned to be a little bit different….

The ‘dramatic’ story of this little boy captivated world news stations that tracked the flight of the balloon and lots of people watched the online live streaming video to see how the story would end.


Footage of the flight:


Hours later when the balloon finally landed in a farmer's field, some 50 miles away from where it started earlier, everyone discovered that the boy was not in it after all… Many people thought that the boy had dropped out of the sky but soon after Falcon was found at home, hiding in a box in his attic.

Later the same night the family appeared for an interview on Larry King Live where Falcon revealed what is considered to be the truth behind this story. When asked why he didn’t come out from the attic when the parents called his name, Falcon stated, clearly, “You guys said that we did this for the show”.

Interview:


The following day, the boys and their parents retuned to TV to answer the questions about the episode being a hoax. The father denied the claims…

Second interview:


The father claimed that the reason the boy said it was “for the show”, had to do with an earlier incident when the news organizations were in the house scoping out the hiding place… yeah, right… ))

Hoax video:


A student came forward claiming to have proof the event was pre-planned for a reality TV show. Though, the father continued to claim it was not a hoax…

The local Sheriff announced that charges would be filed against the family. Apparently two military helicopters were involved, Denver International Airport diverted flights, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) tracked the balloon, and many more people in the air and on the ground contributed to the escapade. The New York Post is estimating the cost to be $2 million dollars…
I guess they did not expect their little joke would take such proportions…

Now, let’s see some pictures of the famous Balloon Boy, his family and the balloon:
