In a tragic end to a gender reveal announcement, a small plane crashed in Turkey, Texas earlier this fall, injuring one person.
The National Transportation Safety Board investigated the incident, which occurred in September, and found that the plane had been part of a gender reveal announcement. The small plane dumped about 350 gallons of pink water to announce a couple was having a baby girl before crashing, according to Time.
Gender Reveal Stunt Ends in Plane Crash
“The airplane ‘got too slow,’ aerodynamically stalled, impacted terrain and came to rest inverted,” the report said. The plane was heavily damaged.
According to the investigation, the pilot, Raj Horan, 49, was uninjured and his passenger suffered minor injuries.
This is not the first gender reveal announcement incident that’s occurred. In October, a woman in Iowa was killed by debris which feel after the device her family had created to announce the baby’s gender exploded. And in 2017, a gender reveal stunt accidentally started a wildfire in Arizona, damaging more than 45,000 acres.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
