Luke Bresette was rushed to a local hospital following the incident, where he was soon pronounced dead.

His mother was also a victim in the accident and is in critical condition, while two older brothers were also injured.

"We're going to continue to look into the situation, but for now we have secured the site," airport spokesperson Toni Herrera-Bast told ABC News.

Six bystanders were needed to life the 300-pound flight status sign after it fell, an incident that took place not long after the airport underwent a $201 million renovation.

Said Birmingham Mayor William Bell in a statement Friday, addressing the tragedy and investigation.

"I have asked our public safety staff to assist this family in their time of need in any way possible as they grapple with what has happened."
