Too much "misinformation", or lack of real information...but if this turns out on a good note it will be a miracle...I read earlier that a sibling reportedly saw the boy get in and untie the balloon from its tether.

Glad to hear the kid is alive...

I imagine the "rescue" cost to this family could prove to immense...Can the family apply for some bailout money?

Looks like AxleIke had it exactly right or the kid was put up to it. I did make a "hey timmy fell into the well, no he was hiding in the barn" comment at work earlier. This was about when it was at 500 feet and about to land.

Glad the kid is ok but from what I have seen so far with those parents the kid is far from ok.
