A gender reveal is believed to have caused a recent airplane crash in Texas, according to a National Transportation Safety Board report. The incident reportedly took place in September 2019.

The crash occurred when the pilot's crop-duster stalled out after dumping about 350 gallons of pink water during a couple's gender reveal celebration. Immediately after dropping the water, the plane stalled and crashed, sustaining damage to its fuselage and right wing, the NTSB said.

Last year, an Arizona man was ordered to pay more than $8-million in restitution after an exploding target that was part of a gender-reveal stunt sparked a wildfire that burned almost 47,000 acres. An FAA inspector also noted that it was a single-seat aircraft and not created to carry two people.

The crash and its place among similar stories in the wider phenomenon of gender reveals gone wrong made headlines in CNN, NBC, and The New York Times.

Just last month, a 56-year-old woman in Iowa died after a gender reveal announcement resulted in an explosion.

There were two people on board the single-seat airplane, according to a Federal Aviation Administration inspector, but no major injuries were reported.

The piece of metal that hit her continued to travel for another 144 yards, authorities revealed.
