Balloon Boy?

What.. What???

There's a 6yo in there, that took off in a home made flying balloon?? I don't understand.

How did he get this to take off by himself? Where is he sitting? How is it suppose to land? If they designed it to fly, they must have designed it to be able to land? How does it steer? Where can i get one?

This little guy is either doomed, or destined for infamy.



"The bizarre scene played out live on television and prompted fears that the flying saucer-shaped balloon would crash with the young child inside. The balloon rotated slowly in the wind, tipping precariously at times.
CNN was reporting that the boy may have fallen out of the balloon as it went airborne.
Cathy Davis of the Larimer County Sheriff's Department told CNN the balloon was owned by the boy's parents.
"We'll just have to respond the best we can," Davis said. "This is a first and we'll do what we need to do."
The Colorado Army National Guard was preparing to launch an OH-58 Kiowa helicopter to help in the response effort, said Capt. Michael Odgers. It wasn't immediately clear what role the helicopter would play.
FAA spokesman Mike Fergus said the agency has been notified and it was unclear whether traffic controllers had picked it up on radar.
Larimer County sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella said the device had the potential to rise to 10,000 feet. Sheriff's officials last saw the device floating south of Milliken, which is about 40 miles north of Denver."
