WOW is all I can say!!!


America, and the world, watched an empty balloon for hours hoping against hope that it would land safely and a mousy little boy would come out, shaken, but safe. The world was captivated by an empty sack of hot air . . . and for the first time in a while, it wasn't a politician.

In Australia, however, a real nightmare was unfolding.

Even knowing the baby was ok, it hurts my chest watching that.

WOW!!! That is amazing. I know the mother and the people waiting on the train were absolutely sickened by what they saw.

The family should be praising God nonstop!!

That is crazy. Saw it this morning before I left for work, and I still can't believe the baby survived. Really miraculous, and I can't imagine the absolute terror and agony the mom had to go through during that period of thinking her child was dead. Just awful.

Wolf Blitzer: Baby, why did you roll onto a train track.

Baby: Dad told me...to do it for a show.



Anyone else see that on Larry King Live with the balloon boy?
