Father-To-Be Killed After Device Meant For Gender Reveal Party Explodes

New York State Police say a 28-year-old man died after a device meant to be used at a baby gender reveal party exploded.

The father-to-be, Christopher Pekny, was building the device that exploded; his brother was also injured.

Gender-reveal parties are a hugely popular trend in recent years to announce whether expecting parents are having a girl or a boy.

A man in Michigan was also killed earlier this month after he was struck by shrapnel from a "small cannon type device" fired during a baby shower.
