349 00:13:37,180 --> 00:13:39,880 personal use however things appear to

350 00:13:39,880 --> 00:13:42,250 take a shocking turn when during a test

351 00:13:42,250 --> 00:13:43,960 the balloon took off in the air

352 00:13:43,960 --> 00:13:45,940 allegedly containing their six-year-old

353 00:13:45,940 --> 00:13:48,670 son Falcon the family noticed he was

354 00:13:48,670 --> 00:13:50,860 missing and Falcons brother claimed to

355 00:13:50,860 --> 00:13:52,750 have seen him climb into the basket of

356 00:13:52,750 --> 00:13:55,060 the craft right before it took off he

357 00:13:55,060 --> 00:13:57,580 contacted authorities and what resulted

358 00:13:57,580 --> 00:13:59,140 was a chase through the Fort Collins

359 00:13:59,140 --> 00:14:02,290 area that lasted two to three hours new

360 00:14:02,290 --> 00:14:04,330 stations picked up on the story in

361 00:14:04,330 --> 00:14:06,910 agencies such as Fox and CNN

362 00:14:06,910 --> 00:14:09,100 helicopters and news vans following

363 00:14:09,100 --> 00:14:10,930 emergency personnel as the offense

364 00:14:10,930 --> 00:14:13,810 continued to unfold eventually witnesses

365 00:14:13,810 --> 00:14:15,760 and viewers notice part of the craft

366 00:14:15,760 --> 00:14:18,220 looked deflated and it began to descend

367 00:14:18,220 --> 00:14:20,860 as it near the ground a man rushed

368 00:14:20,860 --> 00:14:22,750 towards it and grabbed a rope hanging

369 00:14:22,750 --> 00:14:24,760 down in order to prevent it from flying

370 00:14:24,760 --> 00:14:27,460 off again first responders immediately

371 00:14:27,460 --> 00:14:29,650 rushed to the craft to check on Falken

372 00:14:29,650 --> 00:14:31,780 but were shocked to discover Falken was

373 00:14:31,780 --> 00:14:34,390 not inside theories went wild

374 00:14:34,390 --> 00:14:36,190 even people believing Falcon could have

375 00:14:36,190 --> 00:14:38,560 fell out at some point during flight it

376 00:14:38,560 --> 00:14:40,750 was later discovered Falcon was safe and

377 00:14:40,750 --> 00:14:42,700 had actually been hiding in the Attic of

378 00:14:42,700 --> 00:14:45,280 his home the entire time suspicion was

379 00:14:45,280 --> 00:14:47,290 immediately aroused and during a later

380 00:14:47,290 --> 00:14:49,870 interview Falcon was asked why he didn't

381 00:14:49,870 --> 00:14:52,210 come out said he did it for the show

382 00:14:52,210 --> 00:14:54,520 he inuzuka later admitted the entire

383 00:14:54,520 --> 00:14:56,860 thing was a hoax and a publicity stunt

384 00:14:56,860 --> 00:14:59,590 and both later pled guilty to charges of

385 00:14:59,590 --> 00:15:02,590 wasting police resources number four the

389 00:15:09,160 --> 00:15:11,890 sadly this isn't always the case and one

390 00:15:11,890 --> 00:15:13,480 event changed the way that games are

450 00:17:23,980 --> 00:17:26,619 below two SWAT officers standing guard

451 00:17:26,619 --> 00:17:28,870 on an armored vehicle spotted Ireland

452 00:17:28,870 --> 00:17:30,970 above them and reached up to pull him

453 00:17:30,970 --> 00:17:32,679 out and bring him to safety

454 00:17:32,679 --> 00:17:34,840 Ireland was immediately rushed to the

455 00:17:34,840 --> 00:17:36,789 hospital and was brought into stable

456 00:17:36,789 --> 00:17:39,159 condition after a four-hour operation

457 00:17:39,159 --> 00:17:41,529 the image and footage of Ireland being

458 00:17:41,529 --> 00:17:43,330 pulled to safety has become the most

459 00:17:43,330 --> 00:17:45,940 iconic footage of the massacre and was

460 00:17:45,940 --> 00:17:48,130 made even more positive knowing Ireland

470 00:18:10,440 --> 00:18:13,240 the chase began to wind down as the

471 00:18:13,240 --> 00:18:14,820 suspect drove into a fee

472 00:18:14,820 --> 00:18:17,250 and exited the vehicle the chopper

474 00:18:19,620 --> 00:18:21,930 the situation made him feel nervous and

475 00:18:21,930 --> 00:18:23,730 was unsure if he was going to give up

476 00:18:23,730 --> 00:18:26,550 take off on foot or engage in a shootout

477 00:18:26,550 --> 00:18:29,100 with the police the suspect took off and

478 00:18:29,100 --> 00:18:31,500 stumbled a bit with Smith describing his

479 00:18:31,500 --> 00:18:32,730 movement as erratic

480 00:18:32,730 --> 00:18:35,250 suddenly the suspect stopped appeared to

481 00:18:35,250 --> 00:18:37,230 tremble and then with a warning brought
