Boy in the Balloon Appeared on 'Wife Swap'

10/15/2009 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The boy was not in the balloon when it landed.

The boy currently flying over Colorado in a homemade flying saucer appeared on "Wife Swap" back in March.

Boy in the Balloon Appeared on 'Wife Swap'
Six-year-old Falcon Heene's family is described as "storm-chasing, science-obsessed Heene family from Colorado" on the show's website -- and sure enough, in the background of the family photo, there's another flying saucer.

FYI, just because he was 4 at the time of taping doesn't mean he is still 4 now. Humans grow.

25. Prayers

are useless. A crap shoot. Someone actually believes they'll get answered? What about the billions of prayers that get ZERO results??

PRAYERS ARE STUPID. If the kid's ok, Jesus answered their prayers? If kid is not OK, then God has a much bigger plan? Pure b.s. Don't waste your time praying.

Those idiotic parents. What idiot build a balloon in the backyard leave it with 3 young children. CPS need to get involved and snatch the other boys. Those parents will do something else stupid.

What a cutie. I pray this ends well. I don't see how he could've fallen out and none of the news crews saw it. Maybe he was never in it?

I hope this little boy is safe and somewhere hiding in the house in fear he'll be in trouble if he comes out. I pray he wasn't in the balloon or fell out of it :(.

For all those who post mean, inconsiderate, ignorant and hateful words....screw you!! You all need to grow the hell up and if you have nothing nice to say, then don't post at all. Lets hope someday when you all have kids, which I assume you don't cause you don't act like an adult, this does not happen to your child(ren). And if it does, what goes around comes around and perhaps others will also say "who cares" or "they're ugly" and/or other cruel things.

That balloon is not big enough to hold enough helium to lift a 40-60 lb boy to that height - not physically possible. That kid is somewhere else - I have no idea where...but he didn't go up in the air.

I saw that episode. I found the father to be a nutcase and the mother to be a follower. I hope the boy is alright, but I don't think he made it.

the parents should be held on neglect since they obviously weren't watching them. these people are such flakes. I remember this episode the wife was dumb and the father needs some meds

OMG, what the hell is wrong with you. That is a human being and a 6 yr old child to boot. May God have mercy on you and your family if they ever get into trouble. And if you don't believe in God you should start because after this statment you will need his help.
