Pilot dies after plane crashes during gender reveal party in Mexico

Pilot dies after plane crashes during gender reveal party in Mexico

So everybody.happy Monday on this Labor Day.
Are you off?
You’re still laboring,
right?
Or are you laboring?
Like us.
We’re here.
Happy to be here,
though.
Yeah.
We have some great weather.
But actually,
we’re talking about this viral video that everyone’s been talking about from
over the weekend.
Really,
a scary situation,
though,
because someone got hurt,
and it has to do with…
Someone was killed.
Someone died.
Someone was killed.
Gender reveals and how extreme they have gotten,
and so it has a lot of people questioning
now the safety of gender reveals.
So,
That one.
you were talking about this morning.
Yeah.
So this actually happened in Mexico.
And basically,
we’ve got the video here.
We can show it to you.
A stump plane was flying over this party before it crashed in front of what looks like oblivious
Partygoers.
So take a look.
No.
Yeah.
We don’t have the audio.
I was going to say,
I don’t know.
So again,
you saw that plane flying by.
It had that pink smoke while confetti was,
you know,
popping off on the ground.
And then it looks like that plane’s left wing kind of just gives out.
And that’s what leads to the plane to spiral out of control.
Now,
folks on the ground,
they seem like they were completely unaware of this happening.
But reports out of Mexico said that a concerned partygoer found the pilot laying dead in the
wreckage before calling police.
Yeah.
This is not the first time gender reveal parties have been in the spotlight.
Back in 2020,
a gender reveal party sparked a deadly wildfire in California.
I don’t know if you guys remember that one.
Then in 2019,
a family in Australia actually set their car on fire while trying to reveal
that they were having a baby boy.
So we’re talking about this during the show this morning.
Several people had chimed in.
They said,
you know,
again,
these parties are just going too far.
Someone posting on X,
formerly Twitter,
saying,
again,
these are getting out of hand.
Another person texted in saying,
you just don’t always need these parties for everything.
And so we were kind of asking people to weigh in on the show this morning,
especially when
it comes to like what rules,
if any,
need to be in place so that this isn’t I mean,
this isn’t happening.
I’m not sure you can make a rule because we have the freedom to do this.
That plane,
the reading that the plane actually was coming along,
flying over and saw the
trees of the pilot trying to avoid him,
he went vertical and then bent the wing back.
It’s a tremendous amount of force changing direction that quickly.
Well,
we’ve also learned from the two other examples hit Australia in the wildfire.
Don’t use flames.
I don’t think you should use any large equipment as we’re seeing here,
like the classic tossing
a ball up,
hitting it with a baseball.
It’s still you’re seeing people get hurt from that even now that there are no rules,
Less
degrees of maybe not the bats.
OK,
don’t use bats.
All right.
Why don’t you say guess who we’re going to have a girl with Chris?
We had a basket here on wake up.
One was pink and one was blue with a little drum roll.
And then you grabbed.
None of us knew what I knew at that point because Kim and I couldn’t wait.
But you grabbed the blue basket to tell all our viewers that you’re going to have a little
boy who’s having a girl from your dress.
You’re also revealing this one.
Oh,
yes.
Well,
I don’t heard any rumors and you’re green.
What does that mean?
What does it mean?
I know.
I was like speaking of my parents that are not.
No one got hurt.
There’s so many times like the baker made like a purple cake and they have no idea what
the coloring is or you have just there’s no color inside.
So,
yeah,
this the fails got to admit,
I think there’s more fails than the ones at work.
Yeah,
absolutely.
Well,
people,
I think they’re always trying to top what they see online.
Absolutely.
And then everyone in this day and age wants that 15 minutes of fame.
They want their video to go viral and be over the top and stuff and they’re going viral
for the wrong reasons.
You’re right.
The old philosophy.
Kiss the old.
Kiss philosophy.
Keep it simple.
Stupid.
Yeah.
Baby,
that’s the thing.
Joy saying this is getting out of hand.
Leanne saying gender reveals are overrated.
Everyone’s trying to outdo the next person,
which is exactly what we were just saying.
Melissa saying never understood these parties.
And this story is tragic.
It really is.
Well,
it is.
And that’s what makes me think about these rules,
because I would think and I guess this
is a different country,
so I don’t know.
But there’s got to be some kind of rules on low flying planes.
Right.
There’s got to be rules on using fire when it comes to,
you know,
some of these failed
videos that we’ve seen.
So that’s what I just I guess I wonder what what are the next steps for this family now?
Well,
people in weddings use sparklers,
you know.
So I mean,
I don’t know what the gender reveal was,
what was the gender reveal when they
sparked a fire.
But I mean,
like lots of people use sparklers when they come out.
It’s just a safety concern.
Yeah.
Use common sense.
And maybe just no fire.
Just don’t do it.
It comes to fire.
Don’t use fire.
Sparks.
Fire.
Hot.
Just don’t.
Just go back to like cutting into a cake.
Yeah.
Right.
Pink or blue.
I’m just announcing it.
We’re having a boy.
We’re having a girl.
Yeah.
That’s the way they did it for centuries.
Yes.
When did this change?
Listen.
Everything is something now.
Larry.
Everything.
Wow.
Everything is something now.
It’s just always always trying to do the next.
Yes.
Outdo the other.
Do the next big thing.
It changed over when we had the ability at any point to video something before you had
to have a family camcorder.
Right.
Because no one’s going to bring it.
Hold on.
Let me get out the VHS while you sit there.
I was like no.
No.
Now.
Now you can instantly share videos.
I think since.
And it’s all on YouTube.
Yeah.
I mean usually YouTube hours.
Yeah.
We just before this episode we just pulled up a montage of all the gender reveals gone
wrong.
They were exquisite.
Those were human error.
As long as you know no one’s hurt.
You can laugh at it.
But otherwise you know they go to the extreme and then horrible situations like what we’re
talking about today end up happening.
So you use baskets.
Yes.
I think one of yours.
I found one of yours actually on YouTube not too long ago.
I think you guys did something with a light tower.
So we did.
So with my daughter we just I just grabbed a pink teddy bear.
But with my son actually someone here had the idea the Duke Energy which now it’s Wells
Fargo.
No.
550 South Ryan.
Did you see.
I sent an email.
Oh you did.
Oh that’s what it’s called now.
Well back then it was called Duke Energy Building.
And they still light it up for different causes organizations.
And so we kind of did a story on what they how they light up for different nonprofits
and stuff.
But they did.
We decided to team up with a nonprofit that was also blue.
And so they lit up blue.
And that’s how we announced on the air after we did the story what I was having.
So that was fun.
But my daughter eventually will probably be like now how did he get that.
Yeah.
But.
But yeah that was the most extreme that that we got with it.
So anyway.
But still safe.
Still safe.
No fires.
Easy.
None of that.
Well keep your comments coming.
Let us know what you think of all these gender reveals and how they’re out doing each one
every year as we see.
But keep the comments coming.
And we hope you have a nice Labor Day weekend and we’ll see you back on air at 1130.
Have a blessed day.
So for my next skit I’m going to have a trained falcon.
I thought that would be really fun.
That would be good.
Good.
