Balloon Boy -- The 911 Call

10/16/2009 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by a hysterical Mayumi Heene yesterday, trying to tell the operator her 6-year-old son Falcon was aboard in a runaway "flying saucer."

Eventually, papa Richard Heene takes over the call and explains how the "saucer" works.

During the call, the operator asked Richard, "Are you sure that [Falcon] is in there?"

Richard replies, "Yeah, we looked everywhere ... and then my son just said ... yeah, he verified it ... he said yeah he went inside just before it went off."

Richard continues, "We had it tethered ... it wasn't supposed to take off."

I meant to say "pubilicity stunt" not is very possible that it is real, but it was probably for publicity and a quick rise to fame or at least recognition in history.

when did the boy say "yeah". I am in the balloon? While dad was talking to 911. These people can not even tell a good lie. And, of course we all know kids can not lie consistently. dad and Mam should be ashamed, teaching kids to lie. Shame on you Mom and Dad!!!!
