CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The young victim of a BB gun wound had another surgery.

The 10-year-old girl has been at TC Thompson ever since the August 26th accident.

She was at her aunt's home in Chickamauga when a cousin shot her in the eye.

The pellet was lodged in a tear duct near her brain stem. Her family says they don't yet know the extent of the brain damage.

According to a facebook page to keep her friends and family updated, Doctors performed a tracheotomy Tuesday.

It appears to have gone well.
