Gender reveal party ends in disaster as plane crashes in front of oblivious guests

[ad_1]

A gender reveal in Mexico turned deadly Saturday when a stunt plane involved in the celebration crashed in front of oblivious partygoers.

In a video posted to X (formerly Twitter), the unidentified happy couple can be seen clasping hands in front of a giant lit sign reading “Oh Baby” while surrounded by friends and family.

The doomed Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee fills the San Pedro sky with pink smoke, while confetti appears to be shot out of a cannon on the ground.

The plane’s left wing seems to give way as the pilot — who was later identified as Luis Ángel N., 32 — pulls the small plane upwards, sending the aircraft spiraling out of control.

Meanwhile, on the ground, attendees seem totally unaware of the terrifying ordeal unfolding in the sky.

According to a local news outlet, authorities found the pilot lying in the wreckage of the plane after a concerned partygoer called for help.

Paramedics rushed him to the hospital, where he died.

The tragic video has since gone viral and reignited the debate surrounding gender reveals.

“These gender reveal parties are getting out of hand when people die annually because of them,” slammed one X user.

“The way the camera panned back to the couple with not the slightest care in the world for the pilot is sad,” wrote one disgusted user.

“For a moment I actually thought all the screaming was because they saw the plane,” stated a third. “But no, it looks and sounds like only the cameraman noticed (at least initially).”


The happy occasion immediately devolved when both of the plane's wings seemed to snap off as the pilot — who was later identified as Luis Ángel — pulled the small plane upwards sending the aircraft spiraling out of control.

Some X users also speculated about what caused the plane to suffer such a stunning fate.

“Look carefully at the timing of the sudden upward movement, it exactly coincides with the CO2 cannon firing on the ground,” argued one eagle-eyed user. “It seems to me that the aircraft was literally blasted out of the sky.”

“Looks like structural fatigue caused that climb to barely pull enough g’s to cause such a thing,” pointed out a second person, while a third said the pilot “overstressed the wings.”

This is not the first time a gender reveal has gone horribly wrong.

In 2020, a celebration sparked a deadly wildfire in California that raged across 10,000 acres of land.

Another couple came under fire when their “oh baby” sign sent torrents of pink smoke and confetti into the air as several sparklers nearly ignited the surrounding trees.

An Australian family set their car ablaze in 2019 thanks to special tires designed to blow blue smoke to announce their baby’s gender.

The gender announcement tragedies led mommy blogger Jenna Karvunidis — widely credited with “inventing” these types of celebrations — to apologize for sparking the movement.

“Who cares what gender the baby is?” Karvunidis wrote in a viral July 2019 Facebook post. 

“Assigning focus on gender at birth leaves out so much of their potential and talents that have nothing to do with what’s between their legs.”
