A couple held a gender reveal party on Saturday in Sinaloa, Mexico. The expecting mother and father hired a pilot to fly a small plane over a gender reveal party in Laguna de San Pedro, Sinaloa. The plane would release pink-dyed water over the party to signify the upcoming birth of their baby girl. However, the stunt ended in a
gender reveal disaster
The soon-to-be-parents are standing in front of an "Oh baby" sign with pink and blue balloons. The small plane flew straight above the couple and dropped pink water. Meanwhile, a cannon on the ground erupted and fired out pink confetti.
As the pilot pulled up, the plane's wings collapsed mid-flight and the aircraft spiraled out of control. Meanwhile, the couple hug and kiss to celebrate the gender reveal as the partygoers cheer about the unborn daughter.
The plane crashed to the ground. Emergency response teams
arrived at the crash site and found the pilot lying unresponsive in the plane wreckage. The pilot was taken to the Mexican Social Security Institute in Navolato, but was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Aviation Safety Network
said of the gender reveal accident: "Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee crashed after the left-hand wing failed after an emergency hopper release of (pink dyed) water during a gender reveal party."
The Mexican news outlet
Línea Directa Portal
reported that 32-year-old Luis Ángel, from Navaloto, was the pilot who died in the gender reveal disaster.
No other injuries were reported.
