"Balloon Boy" Gets Sick on The Today Show after Dad Says Boy was Confused in Calling Episode "For a Show" - Video 10/16/09
Here is video from the Today Show this morning where the "Balloon Boy" Family was on air. The father, Richard Heene, denied that the whole bizarre episode that unfolded yesterday was a "hoax." Meredith Viera asked him to clarify why son, Falcon, said he hid in the attack because "we did this for a show." The father essentially said his son was "confused," and shortly after he gave that answer, the boy got sick to his stomach on camera.
When asked directly if this was a "hoax," Richard Heene acted indignant and said he was tired of hearing that question. He said it was not a hoax, and said they had nothing to gain by doing such a thing.
