Anonymous donor to pay one year's salary to grandmother who lost thumb by scratch bomb

An anonymous donor has agreed to pay the salary, for one year, of a grandmother who lost her thumb to a scratch-bomb blast last year.

Sally Ann Cuffie was driving through the Las Lomas during Divali celebrations last year, when a scratch bomb landed in the family car, next to her six-month-old granddaughter.

She grabbed the scratch bomb and tried to throw it out, however, it exploded while still in her hands, badly burning her.
