The balloon boy revisited

It’s amazing how fast time goes ..

The Balloon Boy hoax occurred on October 15, 2009, when a homemade helium-filled gas balloon shaped to resemble a silver flying saucer was released into the atmosphere above Fort Collins, Colorado, by Richard and Mayumi Heene. They then claimed that their six-year-old son Falcon was trapped inside it.

We are now closing in on the lucky 13, the 13th anniversary of this incredibly weird and strange event in history. For those remember, it captivated the nation. People immediately had an outpouring of prayer and thanksgiving when the boy was supposedly found safe.

Unfortunately for the balloon boys family, Falcon was about to reveal some very important information for that same nation to hear. During a CNN live interview with Wolf Blitzer, the entire family sat on their couch in their living room for what should’ve been a feel good story about determination and love.

Instead, Falcon drop the bombshell.

So without further ado, let’s go back and put ourselves in the situation again. Where were you when you watch this event occur? I distinctly recall wincing and cringing at the moment this occurred:So without further ado, let’s go back and put ourselves in the situation again. Where were you when you watch this event occur?

Concerning where is the family today? The most recent and reliable information we can find was from an article posted in 2020 about the families ordeal sense, and an attorney for the family stating that they still maintain their innocence in the entire situation.

The Heenes long ago finished their brief jail sentences, but Polis’ pardon will wipe away the lingering effects from their criminal records. Richard Heene will be able to pursue a general contractor’s license now that his felony is pardoned, Polis noted. The Heenes still maintain their innocence, according to their longtime attorney, David Lane. “I think, finally after 11 years, the balloon-acy has ended,” he said, making a pun on the word “lunacy.’
