Sixty-one years ago today, the mid-air collision occurred with the United DC-8 jet crashing down in Brooklyn. Eleven year old Stephen Baltz was the only survivor; sadly, he passed the following day. I was a student at Erasmus Hall High School and remember hearing an inordinate number of sirens in the early afternoon. Had no idea what happened until I got home and turned on the radio. G-d bless the victims and their families. Thinking of you, Stephen.
