    The six-year-old boy who was thought to be in a mylar balloon speeding high across Colorado on Thursday was on the ABC series “Wife Swap.”

    Falcon Heene is the son of Richard and Mayumi Heene of Ft. Collins, Colo. His parents are storm chasers, and their chaotic parenting style was criticized by their “Wife Swap” swap family.

    Richard and Mayumi Heene have two more sons, Bradford and Ryo.

    According to the ABC ’Wife Swap’ website, the family  sleeps in their clothes so they can leap from bed and run after a storm at any given moment. The site also describes a “flying saucer” that sounds like the one that ultimately came back to earth Thursday.

    “When the Heene family aren’t chasing storms, they devote their time to scientific experiments that include looking for extraterrestrials and building a research-gathering flying saucer to send into the eye of the storm,” says the site.

    They’re also apparently shooting music videos. An amateur rock/rap video called “Not Pussified” starring the three boys was posted on Youtube, showing the brothers shooting off rockets, throwing rocks at stuffed animals, and riding some sort of hovercraft that looks eerily like the saucer thought to be carrying Falcon on Thursday.

    The Heene parents received criticism of their chaotic parenting style when Karen Martel of Connecticut entered the household as the new “wife” on “Wife Swap.” Karen said her husband ran a child-proofing business, so she knew a thing or two about safety.

    Karen chastised Richard for not keeping an eye on his sons, letting them play unattended in the woods behind the house. Richard fought Karen’s safety concerns every step of the way.
