For hours, people held their breath; rescuers were alerted nd media followed the run-away balloon where the six year old boy was believed to have climbed before it soared to the sky.
What attracted me in the news was the name of the mother, MAYUMI. Ibig sabihin ay mahinhin. I took a look at the pic. Pilipina siya. Richard, Mayumi and their children are a family of storm chasers.
The boy was found safe in the attic.
After scouring northern Colorado by foot and air, frantically chasing a now-infamous Mylar balloon for dozens of miles and interviewing his big brother over and over, local and federal authorities ended their search for 6-year-old Falcon Heene where it began -- at his house.
Falcon Heene, 6, said he hid in the family attic after his father yelled at him.
He was in a box. In the attic. The whole time.
Some people think that this is some sort of publicity.
I remember when I was in the same age or probably younger. I was trying to join the conversations of my much older cousins nd boarders of my aunt. They were supposed to be babysitting me. My cousin asked me to go to the room and sleep.
I did but not in my room but in the bunk bed of one of the boarders. I climbed to the second level.
Then there was panic. A girl of my age got hit by jeepney and was brought to the hospital.
My cousins looked for me and thought that it was me who had the accident. They were crying while a male boarder was trying to figure out which hospital did the driver bring the victim.
Awakaned by the noise, I went to the living room. Oh my, they hugged and kissed me.
I did nt know why.
