Koch's Tombstone Engraved With Wrong Birth Date

The tombstone for former New York Mayor Ed Koch, "who died in February after meticulously planning the details of his burial for years, was mistakenly engraved with the wrong birth date," NBC 4 New York reports.

"The marker, which stands more than 5 feet tall and 6 feet wide, lists Koch's birth date as Dec. 12, 1942, instead of 1924. The birth date on the headstone would have made him a child during World War II, even though the inscription notes he served in the armed forces during the war."
