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.

That is horrible. That kid will grow up without a dad, which just sucks.

Did they learn nothing from the last gender reveal party? Just stick with the dyed interior of the cake, for goodness sake

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.

Why is Gender such an Explosive Topic?

Such a stupid way to die. I used to feel bad for these people but now everyone knows how dangerous these explosives are, and they still choose to put others lives at risk over it. Was decimating a forest not enough? I feel like 10 years from now they’re going to be having support groups for all the kids who lost their pyro parents during their gender reveal
