BREAKING: 28-Year-Old Dad Dies From Gender-Reveal Explosion Device

An expecting father in New York died when a device exploded at a gender reveal party, according to The Daily Wire.

Christopher Pekny was building a gender reveal device when it exploded.

The family wrote, “‘We are deeply saddened and must inform you all of the loss of our dear and beloved Christopher,” the family wrote on Facebook. “We appreciate the overwhelming display of love and support that you all have shown.”

The New York Times called it “the freakiest of freak accidents that I could ever imagine.”

Peter Pekny said, “He was finally ready to settle down and he was so happy to be a dad.”

“He was just this big kid, ready to be a man. And this shouldn’t have happened.”

“It has been two nights in a row of not being able to sleep, waiting, hoping to hear that this is all some crazy misunderstanding.”

“But we all know that’s not the reality here.”

“With all the wonders of modern medicine, they can piece his legs back together, but they still don’t have anything to piece back together a broken heart.”

From The Daily Wire:

It’s not the first time a gender reveal has ended in tragedy. Earlier this month, a 26-year-old Michigan man died after he was struck by shrapnel from a cannon being used at a baby shower.

And in September 2020, a gender reveal pyrotechnic device ignited a massive wildfire in southern California. A smoke device deployed at the El Dorado Ranch Park in California started a wildfire that burned for 23 days across 22,000 acres and led to the death of a firefighter.

In another accident, debris from a homemade explosive used for a gender reveal struck a woman in Iowa and killed her in October 2019.
