The boy who fell from the sky

In 1960, a plane crashed in Brooklyn. One boy survived, just for a night, and one young nurse spent that night with him. This is what happened.

Inspired by this beautiful Metafilter post, and this plaque, which includes the pocket change the young boy had with him when the plane crashed.

I read something that said Sir Edmund Hillary was scheduled to take that flight.
