Jamie Lynn Spears’ Daughter Maddie “Doing Wonderfully” After ATV Accident
Jamie Lynn Spears’ 8-year-old daughter Maddie Aldridge woke up Tuesday after losing consciousness two days prior when she nearly drowned in an ATV accident. A family friend now exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the young girl is “doing wonderfully.”
As Gossip Cop reported, Maddie was driving a Polaris off-road vehicle on the family’s property in Kentwood, Louisiana over the weekend when she swerved to avoid a drainage ditch. Her vehicle subsequently flipped into a pond with her strapped inside it. Spears and other family members jumped into the water to try and save the young girl, but she was trapped by the ATV’s seatbelt and safety netting.
Maddie spent a few minutes underwater until paramedics arrived and managed to release her from the vehicle, and then airlift her to a New Orleans hospital. After remaining in critical condition on a ventilator since Sunday, Maddie miraculously regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday. “She is aware of her surroundings and recognizes those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident,” a rep for the Spears family says in a statement. “Doctors were able to remove the ventilator today and she is awake and talking. Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident.”
Additionally, a Spears family friend tells Gossip Cop that Maddie is “doing wonderfully” and her recovery is “truly a miracle.” Our source added, “It’s truly been amazing. She’s responded miraculously every step of the way.”
