HELP ME, SUPERMAN!!!Oct 15th, 2009 | By Alkillous | Category: snewz
A 6-year-old boy climbed into a balloon made by his father, a retired meteorologist, and let it loose, floating thousands of feet in the air.
It is currently unknown whether the child was actually in the balloon, or if he had simply let the balloon loose or worse, fallen out of the balloon as it ascended.
The balloon landed at 3:40 PM EST and was immediately set upon by a group of ravenous police, firemen, and do-gooders, who stared at it for a couple of minutes, then proceeded to beat it with shovels before cutting it open to see if anyone was inside. The balloon was empty.
The location of the child is still unknown, but I’d like to think he’s hiding somewhere, afraid that he’s going to get in trouble. The alternative is horrifying.
Update 2: He’s alive!
