BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A Kansas woman is out of the hospital where she was treated after being seriously injured by a flight information cabinet that fell at Birmingham's airport.

Officials say Heather Bresette of Overland Park, Kansas, was released Saturday from UAB Hospital.

Bresette had been treated there since a steel cabinet holding video monitors fell on her family at the newly renovated Birmingham airport on March 22.

The accident killed her 10-year-old son Luke and injured two other sons.

The family was returning home to Kansas following a beach trip to the Florida Panhandle at the time of the accident.

The monitor that fell was installed as part of a $201 million upgrade of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.
