Man Killed After Gender Reveal Party Trick Went Horribly Wrong

A man in the US state of Michigan has died after a gender reveal party trick went horribly wrong.

The 26-year-old bloke was standing nearby when a small cannon device was rolled out in the backyard of a home.

The cannon was ignited but blew up, according to 7News, and sent shrapnel flying in every direction.

The victim was struck by the metal and was rushed to Hurley Medical Center in Flint in a serious condition.

In addition to his death, the shrapnel also damaged three cars that were parked in the garage.

Many gender reveal parties aiming for the spectacular have ended badly in recent times, with one causing millions of dollars in damage.

A 'pyrotechnic device' used for a photo opportunity at a gender reveal party last year sparked a wildfire in California that destroyed more than 7,000 acres of land.

The family that hosted the party are now facing potential jail time, as well as multi-million dollar fines to cover the cost of controlling the blaze.

In a post to her Facebook page High Gloss and Sauce, the blogger said: "Oh my god NO.

"The fire that evacuated parts of California is from a GENDER REVEAL PARTY.

"Stop it. Stop having these stupid parties. For the love of God, stop burning things down to tell everyone about your kid's penis. No one cares but you.

"It was 116 degrees in Pasadena yesterday and this tool thought it would be smart to light a fire about his kid's d*ck. Toxic masculinity is men thinking they need to explode something because simply enjoying a baby party is for sissies."
