Christopher Pekny, a 28-year-old American who was to become a father for the first time, will never be able to taste the joys of fatherhood. While having organized a party to reveal the sex of his unborn child, he tragically passed away, as we learn from the Nieuwsblad.
What caused the death of the future dad is a “homemade bomb” supposed to have exploded and reveal the color of the genre, either pink for a girl and blue for a boy. Originally from Liberty, the man wanted to play the apprentice scientists by creating his own surprise. But the explosion was too violent, Christopher died there.
Her 27-year-old brother Michael was injured and had to go to hospital. New York Police are investigating the explosion. A spokesperson told The New York Times that the detonated device was “some sort of pipe” or a homemade launch tube.
In recent years, sex disclosure parties have been a phenomenon where the gender of the unborn baby is shared with friends and family. Usually, smoke bombs or fireworks are fired. Or firecrackers that produce pieces of pink or blue paper.
But in order to always do better and more, accidents occur regularly during these holidays. This time the consequences are fatal.
