Watch the above video.
Then imagine growing up, knowing this is how your dad died.
What a ridiculous, decadent society.
An upstate man was killed in an explosion during preparations for a gender reveal that went wrong.
The New York State Police said it happed on Sunday just before noon in the Sullivan County town of Liberty.
Police were called to a home on the Lt. JG Brender Highway to respond to a report of an explosion.
Police say that Christopher Pekny, 28, was building a device to be used at a gender reveal party for his own child when it exploded and killed him.
The police said on Monday that the man’s brother, Michael Pekny, 27, was also injured in the blast and was rushed to Garnet Medical Center in Middletown.
Police say the New York State Police Bomb Disposal Unit is continuing to investigate the incident.
The Pekny family owns the Robin Hood Diner in Livingston Manor. The family issued a statement saying: “We are deeply saddened and must inform you all of the loss of our dear and beloved Christopher. We appreciate the overwhelming display of love and support that you all have shown. The Robin Hood will be closed for the immediate future. More details will be posted when we have them available. Thank you.”
There have been several deadly incidents involving baby-related gatherings.
I guess it’s good intentions.
Millennials are so upset about the lack of parenting that they got from boomers, that they’re all out there saying “I’m gonna be the best parent ever… I’m gonna… I’m gonna build an IED to show how good of a dad I’ll be.”
The good news for the dead man and his incoming son is that the wife was just going to leave him in a couple years anyway, and take the kid. So, he really saved himself some trouble here.
