You know a gender reveal party has gone too far if residents from nearby towns actually take notice of it. In this case, it caused a massive explosion.
As reports tell us, a gender reveal party in Kingston, New Hampshire recently made headlines after it rocked several towns in the southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.
It’s a boy! The child’s gender was revealed with a loud bang.
Authorities were informed about the “large explosion” last April 20, Tuesday, in Torromeo Industries, a construction company in Kingston. The Kingston Police Department, however, later found out that it was caused by about 80 pounds of Tannerite, a brand of legal ‘explosive target’ typically used for firearms practice.
According to an official statement from the police, we read:
“During the investigation, the detective was informed that the location, a quarry, was chosen as they felt it was a safe location to detonate the Tannerite.”
They also confirmed that the explosive has been used for a gender reveal party and that the man who ignited the Tannerite is cooperating with the police in the investigations. It remains unclear what charges will be filed against him.
The gender reveal party eventually made it to the news.
In an interview, local resident Sara Taglieri described the incident as “absolutely over the top ridiculous.”
“I do think that they should be held responsible for that and I do think Torromeo should as the property owner that allowed this should also be held accountable”.
Fellow resident Tina Bouraphael complained that the blast led to several cracks in her home.
“It was just a big boom and crack, it was very loud, it just shook my whole porch,” she shared. “It was really very strong. Yeah the word ridiculous came to my mind, it was just incredible.”
