A recent plane crash in Texas that resulted in “substantial damage” to the aircraft and at least one injured person was caused by a gender reveal stunt gone wrong, officials said in a report Friday. 

Why do people need to do "Gender Reveals?" At one time you'd just tell your close friends and family when you found out and before that it was the doctor/nurse doing the reveal when they handed the little sprog over.

Just stupid people trying to boost their social media score counter.
