Jamie Lynn Spears Tried Saving Daughter Maddie From Drowning After ATV Accident
Jamie Lynn Spears tried saving 8-year-old daughter Maddie Aldridge from drowning while she was submerged in a pond following an ATV accident on Sunday. Her rescue attempt was unsuccessful, but paramedics freed the girl from the water a few minutes later. She’s currently in critical, but stable condition.
The incident occurred on the Spears family’s property in Kentwood, Louisiana, where Maddie was driving a Polaris off-road vehicle. The young girl reportedly swerved to avoid a drainage ditch while riding, causing her ATV to flip into a pond and taking her under with it. Her mom and step-father, Jamie Watson, witnessed the accident and dove into the water to try and get her out, but she was trapped by the vehicle’s seatbelt and safety netting.
Maddie spent a few minutes underwater before Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and EMT’s managed to rescue her from the pond. She was then airlifted to a New Orleans hospital, where she remains in serious condition. Gossip Cop spoke to a friend of the Spears family, who asked that everyone pray for Maddie during this difficult time. We will have updates as more information about the incident and the young girl’s health condition is revealed.
