Airport Sign Falls and Kills 10 Year Old Boy
The airport had just completed the first part of a $201 million renovation, and one can’t help but wonder if this arrival-departure sign was not hung properly as part of that work.
Victim Luke Bresette of Overland Park, Kan., was pronounced dead at a local hospital, Children’s Hospital of Alabama, AP reported. Two other children hurt in the accident ,when the airport sign falls, were also taken to that medical facility, while mother Heather Bresette was transported to University Hospital. She was in critical condition.
The sign, estimated weight 300 to 400 pounds, fell down in what AP called a “pre-security area of the hospital around 1:30 p.m.
