how exactly does one rescue a balloon?
up that high for too long and he's either going to suffer hypothermia or hypoxia

They started a ground search for the 6 year old.

Could it be that the brother that said he saw the 6 year old get in the basket not be telling the truth?

The Father yelled at the kid (Falcon) for scaring the family so bad.
Someone will want the father to go to jail for "hurting the boys feelings".

I watched some of this last night. I went from worrying about the kid hoping he was o.k. to complete frustration over the fact the parents are f-in idiots and the kids need a foot up there ass. Unfortunately it is really not the kids fault for being the way they are. They can't help being brought into this world by underqualified parents.

Anyone question why the father would pump about $1,000.00 of helium into this balloon? Then walk away, leaving the balloon unattended? Was he about to test his airship? From his backyard? Doesn't add up to me. I call hoax.

A lot of people will risk their 15 minutes of fame as it turns into a life time of embarrassment, and some don't seem to mind.

The family interviews remind me of one of TV Lands favorite disfunctional families "Malcom in the Middle"
