A pilot has died after the plane he was flying as part of a gender reveal party, in Mexico, crashed. It happened on Sunday.
Video, posted online, shows the plane releasing pink smoke as it flies over a couple. They are holding hands in front of a sign which reads “Oh baby,” surrounded by pink and blue balloons.
The recording captures the moment the plane’s left wing appears to separate from the fuselage, as it flies past the group of people, gathered below.
Authorities in Navolato, Sinaloa, state the pilot died in the hospital, after the crash.
According to CNN, Alan Francisco Rangel of the Sinaloa Red Cross said paramedics treated the pilot at the crash site, in San Pedro, Navolato. Then they took him to a local hospital, where he died.
Authorities did not release the pilot’s name, and the cause of the crash is not clear.
Remarkably, no further injuries were reported as a result of the accident.
And the couple were busy embracing under the pink dust, that they did not appear to notice the wing coming off of the plane, overhead.
