Fabiola Campillai, who was hit in the face by a tear gas canister, will undergo surgery to repair a damaged fistula in her skull.
Fabiola Campillai, who was left blind after a Chilean Police (Carabineros) agent launched a teargas bomb to her face in 2019, was rushed to a hospital in Santiago to undergo surgery after suffering severe headaches.
