    Default Six year old boy alone in hot-air balloon over Colorado

    Praying for his safety...unbelievable story

    AP: A 6-year-old boy climbed into a hot-air balloon aircraft and floated away Thursday, forcing officials to scramble to figure out how to rescue the boy.

    Larimer County sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella says the device, which is shaped like a flying saucer, has the potential to rise to 10,000 feet. Sheriff's officials last saw the device floating south of Milliken, which is about 40 miles north of Denver.

    Turn on a news channel if you can. Live feed from area helicopters of this balloon flying over Colorado.

    There are some reports that the kid jumped out, which would be a terrible end to this story.

    Hopefully the kid is staying put inside the balloon and will somehow make it safely back to earth.


    Note: it's NOT a hot air balloon, but rather large mylar helium balloon.

    Here's story with pics of the balloon.

    if the boy is rescued, he should then be rescued from his parents.

    Oh, my. I hope this turns out for the best. This thing is hauling ass, and air traffic is being diverted around it.

    Hope the kid got scared when his Dad's balloon flew off and he's hiding somewhere.
