Heather Bresette remained in serious condition Monday at University Hospital. She required weekend surgery to repair two broken ankles and a crushed pelvis.

Her husband and their older children Anna and Joe were with the family Friday waiting to catch the flight home, but escaped injury.

On Monday, Sam Bresette was also visited by a small group of former University of Alabama football players.

“Sam got a real boost in his spirits when they visited. He was very impressed,” the bishop said, adding he and his deceased brother were “really into sports.”

Baker said parishioners have begun collecting donations for the family amid an outpouring of support in Birmingham.

“Everyone in our city is saddened that such a tragedy happened in our city. So many people are praying for the family and we want them to know that Birmingham is a kind and good city.”

Meanwhile, airport authorities sought more details as to how the flight display board toppled. The panel was newly installed in a public area that led to a renovated airport concourse that opened March 13.

An airport spokeswoman, Toni Herrera-Bast, said the contractor in charge of the recent construction, Brasfield & Gorrie-Bloc Global Services Group, of Birmingham, was collecting more information.
