In one video, the couple-to-be from Sinaloa, Mexico, were seen smiling and holding hands in front of a sign that reads “Oh Baby.”
One attendee at the party captured the shocking moment as the plane went into a spin before crashing.
As the small plane approached, it triggeredSmoke, which meant the couple was expecting a girl – then disaster struck.
The pilot seemed about to pull the plane up when the left wing suddenly gave way and the plane went into a spin.
But those attending the event seemed unaware of thiswhat was happening above their heads and continued to celebrate the gender reveal.
Later photos showed 32-year-old pilot Luis Angel N. lying in the wreckage of the plane before being taken to hospital, where he died.
The incident went viral online, and viewers had a mixed reaction to the partygoers’ seemingly casual response.
One said: “The way the camera panned back to the couple without paying the slightest attention to the pilot is sad.”
Another chimed in: “Why do they have to be doing such extreme gender reveals lately? Why can’t they just settle for something simple?”
One man said: “It looks like he was over-stressing the plane. I wonder if he exceeded safe maneuvering speed? I hate to see that.”
One Twitter user added: “What’s the point of this anyway? I see so many accidents and incidents in gender reveal.”
In 2021, a California couple’s gender announcement sparked a wildfire that burned more than 7,000 acres.
The device, used to emit blue or pink smoke to indicate the gender of an expecting baby, is believed to have started the fire.
A spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said the family could be held liable for the entire cost of putting out the fire — which amounts to millions of dollars.
And a father-to-be died and his brother was injured in an explosion that reportedly occurred while they were building a device for a baby gender reveal party.
