Harm caused by gender reveal parties

Revealing the gender of your child is typically a joyous occasion for you and your partner. But the desire to make it unforgettable or over top has sometimes led to some shocking outcomes.

A soon to be grandmother named Pamela Kreimeyer, 66, was killed at her home when shrapnel struck her in her head. The homemade gender reveal shrapnel was filled with gunpowder; it exploded sending pieces of metal flying.

In Texas, another gender reveal party went wrong when a plane crashed carrying 350 gallons of pink water. The accident was caused because the plane was “too slow” and the plane was also designed to carry one person and that caused it to immediately stall.

A couple’s gender reveal video went viral when the parents were on the deck outside their house ready to launch their cannons. Just as the blue powder came out, the back of the cannon shot right back at the dad in his groin area.

The Kiliebert family used the family’s pet alligator, and a watermelon, for their reveal. When the alligator shut it’s jaw, the watermelon exploded revealing it was a boy. Even though no one was hurt, it placed people in harm’s way.

Demi Dickey who lived in Arizona shot a fire arm at a target that was supposed reveal the blue or pink powder, but instead the hit caused a fire that has damage 45,000 acres of land and has caused 8 million dollars in damages.

A new life is always a joyful thing to celebrate, but there is always a safer way to reveal the gender of a baby rather than to go over the top with planes, alligators, or using fire arms. Why not cut a cake with the gender of the baby inside the cake or use balloons to reveal your baby’s gender.
