News footage captured you think this is the boy falling out, or something else?

  • My 6yr old actually noticed this while we were watching the news coverage, pretty good eyes I have to say cause i didn't see it. I told him there was a boy the same age as him in the balloon(at first we thought) and then as we were watching the recap he says "the boy fell out". Not sure if it was the boy or not, but i'm thinking it would have to be.

    My 17 yr old says something else happened to the boy and this is a diversion. He has a vivid imagination. Not saying it isn't possible, just don't think my opinion.

    I just saw this family on wifeswap yesterday on lifetime. the henne/martel families. The dad in this family has a really, really bad temper and is a major control freak. And the ironic thing is...mayumi(sp?) the mom of falcon(kid in balloon) was trying to get the other family to be less overprotective of their kids then this happens. Strange....

  • Some of the comments are saying it is faked. Are they showing it on the tv too?

  • It's edited. It's so visible in the clip, that if it had happened live, the newscasters would have said something about it; someone would have definitely seen it and pointed it out.

  • that's what I thought 5:10....the fact that the newscasters said nothing was the odd thing.
