Two people have tragically passed away in a bizarre accident that took place during a gender reveal party involving a plane.
The heartbreaking incident took place in Cancun, Mexico, where a couple expecting a baby organized a special gender reveal party and hired two pilots to reveal the gender of their incoming child using a plane.
According to the reports, the pilots took to the sky in a small aircraft propeller and flew the plane over the boat on which the group gathered to celebrate the gender reveal.
Once the pilots were ready to reveal the sign showing the baby’s gender, they made a swift turn before suddenly losing control of the aircraft that plunged into the water head-first.
In a video taken by the group, the couple and their guests were heard shouting ‘it’s a girl!’ moments before the plane crashed into the sea.
Following the crash, emergency responders rushed to rescue the two pilots and the passengers that reportedly joined them on their trip. While the first pilot died during the rescue mission, the other passed away shortly after paramedics began treating him on the shore.
As the local media reported, the planes belonged to a company known as Xomex, whereas the pilots took off in Holbox before making their forty-mile journey to Cancun where the couple and the guests were waiting for the big reveal.
As of this writing, the cause of the crash remains unknown. The incident is being investigated by the civil aviation agency.
