"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.

It seems implausible to believe the family actually say one of the children video taped the 6 year old child getting into that jiffy pop balloon contraption with a supposed cardboard bottom and he could somehow be able to secure himself inside of it?? If the boy's weight is between 40-45 lbs.and the speed of the balloon is traveling @ approximately 25 miles per hr in a 2 hour span at an elevation exceeding 500' in the air and it finally lands around 50 miles from the home the scientist father logically explain exactly how he woud believe his son could have been inside of it? It truly defys logic and sounds like a publicity stunt or hoax of some sort. It is most unfortunate for parents to involve small children in dangerous activities, such as storm chasing, mommie swapping and bogus balloon mischief.

Nice comment, Brian. It really does seem implausible when you lay it out like that.

I'm shocked the kids first words were not, "Why do they hate Obama so when god sent him to save us?"

Alan are you a moron, or do you just seem like one on the internet?

Chad, Alan is obviously joking -which is hardly inappropriate, since this whole debacle is a joke.

I think we all can agree the money spent on the search is worth having this for all time :


Keep reaching for those stars, Falcon!

hoax or not, the balloon boy gave his parents a heck of a lot of publicity in return for minimal effort on their part
