FORT COLLINS, Colo. – A 6-year-old boy climbed into a homemade balloon aircraft in Colorado and floated away Thursday, forcing officials to scramble to figure out how to rescue the boy as the balloon hurtled through the air.

I was watching the live video. When the balloon came down, there was no one inside. I'm hoping that it was some kind of hoax, and not the other possibilities.

Me too, I'm hoping the kid is being a kid and hiding in a closet as he has let his parents helium balloon go.

The kid has been found hiding in a box in the attic apparently.

Publicity stunt? I mean, according to the media the family has tried everything they can to get publicity. They were for example participating ABC's "Wife Swap".

So, you're saying the liberal left-wing media is behind this. A massive conspiracy is afoot?
