With the balloon incident last Thursday in Fort Collins, Colorado now being called a hoax, the original 911 call from the Heene family is particularly interesting.  TMZ has acquired the call from Richard and Mayumi Heene, when they told police that their son Falcon, a.k.a ballon boy, was in their homemade balloon and flying in the Colorado sky. During the call, Richard Heene tells the operator that Falcon is in the aircraft and asks, “What do you do in a case like this … how the heck am I gonna get him down?”  As we now know, Falcon Heene was not in the aircraft, and Richard Heene could face criminal charges.
