Donald Huffman, 91, talks about surviving the 1927 Bath School disaster in Bath Township, Michigan, in which a local farm owner planted a bomb at his school. Thirty-eight children and six adults died in the explosion, and about 60 others were injured. Donald, who was 9 years old at the time, lost one eye and part of his cheekbone in the explosion and was left scarred all over.
