Mom, son hurt by falling sign at Birmingham airport still hospitalized

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Officials say a mother of five who was crushed beneath a falling airport sign that killed her son is in serious condition at a Birmingham hospital.

Witnesses say Heather Bresette and her children were walking past a large flight information display that fell away from the wall. It caught her, Sam, Tyler and 10-year-old Luke underneath. Luke was killed.

Her 8-year-old son, Sam, is in Children’s of Alabama in good condition. Five-year-old Tyler was released Sunday to the care of his father, Ryan Bresette, who wasn’t injuried Friday at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

Two older siblings, Anna and Joe, weren’t hurt.

The renovated concourse opened March 13. Airport officials say they and their contractors are investigating what happened.
