Jamie Lynn Spears’ 8-Year Old Daughter Left In Serious Condition After ATV Accident
Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter Maddie has been left in a serious condition in hospital after a tragic ATV accident over the weekend.
The 8-year old girl – Britney Spears’ niece – was reportedly not with her mom, Jamie Lynn, when the freak quad bike accident occurred.
The little girl was forced under water for over five minutes and became unconscious, eventually having to be airlifted to hospital when emergency services finally reached her.
The younger of the Spears sisters rose to fame when she was just a teenager in the hit Nickelodeon series Zoey 101.
But her “good girl” image was tarnished in December 2007, when her teen pregnancy made headlines.
Jamie announced she was pregnant at the age of 17 with her then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge. However, the country singer has since proven that she has a natural knack for motherhood, as she shares a close bond with her daughter.
Maddie was on a hunting trip on Sunday, February 5 in Kentwood, Louisiana, when the off-road bike she was a passenger in lost control and veered off track.
The ATV completely flipped over and allegedly left the vulnerable girl trapped in the water underneath it.
Jamie Lynn’s father, grandfather to Maddie, spoke out to ET saying, ‘all I can say is pray for our baby Maddie’.
Since the news broke of the unprecedented incident, there have been many reports circulating about the child’s condition.
The 25-year-old mom has now spoken out about her daughter’s accident, releasing a statement to clarify that the full story on what really happened to Maddie has not yet been revealed to the press.
Her statement read,
The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn’s daughter Maddie are incorrect.
Right now the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family.
Lynn’s husband, Jamie Waston, posted a photo of Maddie on Instagram just hours before the casualty, which he has now removed.
Lots of tributes and well wishes have been flooding in on social media at the news Maddie’s condition is serious.
