<p>This is mind blowing. There’s a good chance “Balloon Boy” from back in 2009 wasn’t actually an intentional hoax at all and this family got screwed over by the justice system and lied about by the media 😳</p>

<p>I don’t know, I always thought that the most damning evidence against them was the kid’s slip up during the interview, which interestingly enough is the evidence he seemed to gloss over more than the others.  The excuse given by this kid wasn’t just “not a great excuse” it makes no sense.  </p>
<p>The kid states that someone asked him vaguely “so what happened about this balloon thing” shortly after he’d spoken to someone else about where he was hiding.  That’s not what happened though, when this kid slips up his parents asked him, “Didn’t you hear us calling for you?” then when he nods yes, they ask “well why didn’t you come out?”  Then the kids answers, “<b>You guys said</b>, we did this for the show.” </p>

<p>Yes and the video addresses this. It is a weird slip but being that it’s pretty much the only evidence that still stands up and it *is* still the word of a sleep deprived six-year-old who may not have even fully understood the question, especially since they *have* been on shows before, I don’t think that alone is enough to show beyond reasonable doubt that’s a hoax.</p>
