Out of the mouths of babes! When CNN's Wolf Blitzer asks 6-year-old Falcon Heene why he didn't come out when he heard his family and police calling for him, the little boy gives a VERY interesting response. Check it out!

What do you think? Was it a hoax?

Wow you said not to come out it’s for the show? That’s nuts!

No it sounded like he said someone told him that they did it for the show. But I can’t understand whose name he said at the beginning.

I saw the wife swap shop they were on and I said to my husband when they were looking for him that this was probably just a stunt. If it turns out that way, they should make the parents pay for the cost of the search!

You notice when he says that dad says Ummm or yeah and mom quickly responds, “Nooo.” Hmm, did they think they just got caught or what. I noticed minutes later dad was asked what his son meant by this, he refuses to ask his son and then jumps to the defense stating he’s appalled by everyone for thinking it was a stunt.

What a bullshitter! Children are so honest, I believe the child. What an awkward moment for the parents! Busted! I think that someone even let one go in the uncomfortable silence after Falcon said they did it for the show. The father just stammered and didn’t make sense after that.Ha they need to pay for all the damages…

it’s hard to believe that so many people believed that a 6 year old kid was still inside of this deflated balloon, even right at the end when it was barely keeping it’s own weight afloat
