Gender Reveal Party Goes Tragic After One Dies

A couple’s gender reveal party turned tragic over the weekend in Iowa when an explosion killed a 56-year-old woman.

Investigators say an explosive device was used to reveal the baby’s gender, but a piece of flying debris struck the victim and killed her. Police haven’t revealed many details of the explosion or what material was used. (CBS News)

Hot Takes:

  • These gender reveals have gotten out of hand. Do you really need an explosive device to announce whether you’re having a boy or a girl?
  • It was just a freak, tragic accident. It’s very sad. It should have been a happy occasion.
  • It’s not the first time an explosive device was used in a gender reveal. Others have also used firearms. It’s crazy.
  • And no, we don’t know the baby’s gender.
