    In colorado. He apparently got stuck in his parents' experimental weather balloon. It did not look as if there was any spot for the boy to breathe out of. The balloon was filled with helium

    When the balloon came to rest not long ago after flying thousands of feet in the air, emergency crews opened the balloon to find nothing.

    Some people are saying he fell out.

    I don't think he was in to start with. The boy couldn't have cut the tether, held the 20 ft wide balloon down, and climbed in all by himself.

    Balloon had been flying at 8K feet through much of the flight, crazy to think of how it was for the kid if I ever was in it.

    poor boy must be looking for air to breath then fell out when the hole he punched was too big.

    If this is no BS that is....

    Yeah, been watching that on CNN for the past few hours. The boy wasn't in the craft after it landed, they believe he fell out shortly after it broke from it's ropes.
    --
    CNN just stated that he might have never even gotten in the craft in the first place.

    He's not in the balloon but I think he just started a thread about wanting to post 30 CL ads in one day with the same link in the description.

    New reports:

    The boy did not fall out of the balloon. They believe he is walking around on the ground somewhere, lost.
