Man Killed By Exploding Cannon At Gender Reveal Party

A Michigan man was killed at a baby shower when a cannon used for a gender-reveal exploded.

According to police, a “small cannon device” exploded, spraying metal shrapnel that hit the 26-year-old victim as well as several nearby vehicles.

It’s not the first time a gender-reveal stunt has gone wrong. An Iowa woman was killed by an explosion in 2019, while another party last September sparked a wildfire that burned thousands of acres in Southern California.

Do we need to ban all gender reveal parties? What’s your ‘party gone wrong’ story?
