Audio: Balloon hoax 911 call

"My family and I made an experimental flying saucer. It wasn't supposed to fly. We thought we had it tethered down and I think my six-year-old boy - he got inside. And it took off." says Richard Heene in this 911 call made shortly after the balloon left the ground. (AP)
