Colorado Boy Safely Rescued After Floating Mid-Air in Balloon Aircraft

A 6 year old boy in Fort Collins, Colorado has been chased after he climbed into a balloon-like experimental aircraft that was made by his parents. The boy floated over eastern Colorado for almost 3 hours. Larimar County officials successfully rescued the boy who floated 500 feet above ground 40 miles going to Denver. The home-made experimental aircraft has a large helium balloon attached at their home on Fossil Ridge Road in Fort Collins.

UPDATE: The Boy WAS NOT in the Balloon! They are still searching for him
