MARION COUNTY, IOWA – A joyous occasion turned tragic for Iowans this weekend when an unexlplained explosion sent debris hurtling through the air, striking and killing a woman.

Police in Marion county, southwest of Des Moines, say that the freak accident occurred Saturday, October 26 during a “gender reveal” party, where parents announce whether their expected baby is a boy or girl. During the reveal of the baby’s sex, there was an explosion. Debris was sent hurtling through the air and a woman, 56-year-old Pamela Kreimeyer, was struck and killed by a piece of metal debris.  She was standing nearly 4 dozen feet from the party device when it exploded like a bomb.

Police have so far declined to release further details about the tragic incident, not even the sex of the baby.

    “not even the sex of the baby”? Come on, was that necessary?

      I had that same thought. Whose stupid idea was it to put something that ridiculous in such a tragic story?? That’s lower than poor taste, and even in a satire piece would be considered too low. VERY disappointing.
