BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WHNT) — Passengers and employees at the Birmingham-Shuttleworth International Airport paused for a moment of silence Saturday afternoon in memory of a ten-year-old boy.

Luke Bresette died last year when a flight information display fell on him. His mother and two brothers were injured in the same accident.

The airport held a 30 second moment of silence at 1:30 PM, the moment last year when Bresette was killed.
The flight information sign weighed more than 300 pounds.

Since then other similar information signs have since been removed and replaced.
