Iowa woman killed in gender-reveal party explosion

Gender-reveal party turns tragic when woman killed in explosion: Sheriff

Pamela Kreimeyer, 56, died after the explosion sent debris flying at her home in rural Iowa, pictured, authorities said.

The incident occurred Saturday afternoon at a home in Knoxville, about 40 miles southeast of Des Moines, according to a statement from the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Tape was then wrapped over the top of the metal tubing, inadvertently creating a pipe bomb. The family had welded a homemade stand, which was filled with gunpowder, to a metal base. "The piece of metal that hit her then continued another 144 yards".

They drilled a hole in the side of the stand to install a fuse and placed a piece of wood on top of the gunpowder, before adding colored powder indicating the baby's gender, the statement said.
