STILWELL, Kan. -- The Bresette family finally returned home Sunday after enduring a terrible loss at the end of their spring break.

An airport display board fell on four members of the Bresette family, killing 10-year-old Luke.

The accident happened March 22 at the Birmingham, Ala. airport.

The board, which displays arrival and departure times, fell on the family, crushing Luke and severely injuring his mother Heather and two of his siblings.

Alex Bresette, the boy's uncle, told FOX 4 News the family has finally returned to their home.

Doctors released Heather after surgeries for a crushed pelvis and two broken ankles.

The Bresette children attend St. Thomas More Academy.

Funeral plans for Luke have not been released by the family.
