A gender reveal stunt in a Cessna plane went horribly wrong when the plane crashed into the sea as the expectant parents looked on.

The accident happened off the coast of Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, on March 30, Yahoo reports.

Cellphone video shows the light aircraft dropping pink powder to reveal the gender of the unborn child as a girl.

The plane flew overhead and then dropped out of the sky. Shocked family and friends screamed as the plane crashed.

Authorities say four people were on the plane. Two people -- the pilot and the co-pilot --died. The Navy Guard did not explain if the other two people were rescued.

Gender reveal parties have increased in popularity over the years. Some of the parties have ended in tragedy, including a 26-year-old dad who died in an explosion.

The blogger who started the gender reveal craze 10 years ago spoke out after forest fires threatened lives during some parties.

"Stop having these stupid parties," wrote Jenna Myers Karvunidis, who blogs under High Gloss and Sauce on Facebook. "For the love of God, stop burning things down to tell everyone about your kid's penis. No one cares but you."

Amari Dancy thought she chose the perfect hiding place during a game of hide and seek with her cousins while on coronavirus lockdown in her Virginia home.

The 18-year-old chose to hide in a washing machine but the game ended when she got stuck in the machine and was unable to free herself.

"We already had hid underneath the bed, in the closet, and we couldn't go down to the basement," Dancy told NBC News.

Medics and the Prince Williams County Department of Fire and Rescue arrived to help rescue Dancy from the machine on Sunday, according to NBC News.

The heroes removed the machine's top and yanked Dancy out of the machine just before midnight Sunday.

"I mean it's pretty embarrassing, but all I can do is laugh it off. I had a laugh out of it, my family had a laugh out of it, I'm OK. As long as I'm OK, that's all that matters to me."

Video from the rescue operation made its way to social media where Dancy became an overnight star and racked up a few hundred new followers.

"I just wanted to be out of there," she said.

Jose Mangual

13-year-old Jovan "JoJo" Mangual's name has been added to the list of known victims who were crushed under tons of mud, trees and rocks in Oso, Washington's mudslide on March 22.

JoJo's body was found in the mudslide and officially identified on Thursday.

JoJo's father, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Mangual, showed up at the site every day, wading through the debris looking for his son.

“I want to be there, I want to find my son. I wouldn’t do it any other way,” he said in an interview with CNN Monday.

Mangual searched through mud that was 70 feet deep in some places. “Of the five deployments I’ve been on, nothing compares to this,” he said.
