New York ’gender reveal’ party explosion kills dad-to-be

A man was killed Sunday in New York after the device he was constructing for his upcoming kid’s gender-reveal party exploded. The blast occurred at a home in Liberty, killing Christopher Pekny, 28, and injuring his brother Michael Pekny, 27. Police said the incident remains under investigation. The deceased’s oldest brother termed it as ’the freakiest of freak accidents that I could ever imagine.’

The largest gender reveal party was on Aug 6, 1945 when Japan learned that the US had a Little Boy.

Gender reveal parties are so dumb. No one cares about the gender of your stupid baby. Just bake a colorful cake and serve some booze. No explosions, wildfires, etc.

This is horrible. And he was only 28 too. He was definitely young enough to know the horror stories of other "gender reveal" parties.

With all the restrictions on fire arms you would think it would be just a little harder to build an explosive. In which case Isis would like to know what they used.

Gender reveal parties in general are pretty useless to begin with, so rigging them with explosives are just absolutely ridiculous. All the best wishes to the child, hopefully things will turn out better for them.

Why can't people just stop trying to overdo gender reveals? Starting fires and blowing themselves up just to try and have some pink or blue smoke appear isn't worth it at all.
