Baloon ride hoax – JAM

The Heeney family, Fort Collins, Colorado, created a giant hoax last October 15th that captivated the world. The parents claimed that six-year old Falcon was in their home-made balloon that had become untethered. It generated a massive search and rescue mission as it flew over 70 miles at heights over 7000 feet before descending outside Denver. The whole thing was broadcast live on TV. But Falcon wasn’t in the balloon and the whole thing was a publicity stunt. Some folks are so self-centered that they will do anything to achieve a little notoriety with no regard to integrity or the scars left on their children. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
