Dial 911 for Balloon Boy

TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed by the parents of Falcon Heene, who was thought to have been carried away in a homemade helium balloon on Thursday. His mother, Mayumi Heene, can be heard sobbing to the 911 dispatcher, who ascertains that there was an "experimental flying saucer." Richard Heene, the boy's father, later gets on the phone to confirm that they've looked everywhere for their son and are sure that he is in the balloon. He expresses concern about possible electrocution, as the balloon—which was covered in tin foil—supposedly emits one million volts every five minutes. Both mother and father intermittently disappear from the phone call at various points.
