A settlement was announced Wednesday in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Luke Bresette, the 10-year old boy killed in a sign collapse at the Birmingham airport. The family sued contractors involved in the installation of the flight information sign. Speaking to reporters after a hearing in Jefferson County circuit court, the boy's father, Ryan Bresette, told reporters the people who work for the companies are good people who did not intend for the tragedy to happen. "Nevertheless, mistakes were made, and there has now been accountability and repentance. Our family, in return, extends forgiveness towards them." The family members of Luke Bresette will receive an undisclosed amount of money from companies involved in designing, making and installing the sign. Ryan Bresette credited the family's faith with getting them through the tragedy, and pledged to continue efforts to help the lives of young people through the Live Like Luke Foundation. "We miss Luke every hour, of every day, and we will never forget Luke," Bresette said.
