A Child Floating Away in a Balloon?

The balloon reported to be floating across Colorado with a 6 year old child trapped in it has finally landed:

The bizarre scene played out live on television and prompted fears that the mushroom-shaped balloon would crash. The balloon rotated slowly in the wind, tipping precariously at times.

The boy's family had been building an experimental aircraft that had a large helium balloon attached to it at their home, KUSA-TV reported. The aircraft, which resembled a flying saucer, was approximately 20 feet by 5 feet and had a foil top.

The balloon is down now and they are saying there was no kid in in it when it landed.

Remind never to build a big balloon like that in my backyard. I hope the kid never actually got on the balloon.

Hiding in the attic. I'm guessing he let the balloon go and hid because he was worried he would be in BIG trouble.
