For instance, in 2017, alligator handler T-Mike Klieber put a blue-goo-filled watermelon in an alligator's mouth for a Louisiana gender-reveal party.

A Texas plane crash that injured one person was part of a gender reveal stunt gone wrong, a National Transportation Safety Board report said Thursday.

The pilot told NTSB he was flying his plane at a low altitude to dump 350 gallons of pink water for a friend's gender reveal. The airplane "got too slow" and stalled before crashing.

Thankfully, the 49-year-old pilot Raj L. Horan of Plainview, Texas survived and sustained only minor injuries.

The plane crash took place September 7 in the town of Turkey, located 475 kilometres west of Dallas, Texas.

The pilot said there had been no "preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation". In another case, in April 2017, a gender reveal stunt that involved a highly explosive substance shot with a rifle sparked a massive wildfire in Arizona that damaged more than 18,000 hectares.

Last month, an Iowa woman was killed when a homemade device that was meant to spray colorful powder into the air instead exploded like a pipe bomb. In line with a report from the Nationwide Transportation Security Board, the airplane was created to hold only one particular person.
