A 6-year-old boy is trapped and floating through the skies in Colorado in an experimental helium balloon he was helping his father build. There is live footage of the balloon’s journey here, but once you click on it you’re going to have to stick with it, and it’s kind of tough to take.
Update: Because this world could not be any stranger, you can find a picture of young Falcon Heene and his family here, from when they were on… “Wife Swap.” Jesus.
Now: “They didn’t find a body, they didn’t find any child in this basket…”
People have become a little obsessed with the Heene family videos!
