I think that fact was already proven as a result of the "Wife Swap."

I read a summary today, which argued the event was unlikely to be a hoax.

I read that the kid said something along the lines of "I thought we did this for a TV show?" before throwing up everywhere.

Looks like the Sheriff is going to file charges against the father. Source.

Definity gives new light to the phrase:

Actually - after hearing this story, this is probably the only person still smiling.

The balloon is down but the gig is up.... The father admits it was a hoax.

. . . the boy's parents will likely face felony charges.

Hell yes. People either risked or could have risked their lives trying to rescue the supposed kid from the balloon.

Six-year-old
. . .
37-pound-boy

The dumbshits need to stop playing with flying saucers and start feeding their kid more. Thirty-seven pounds is below the 5th percentile for a 6-year-old, even if he is only 6.0 years (72 months) old.
