Jamie Lynn Spears’ Daughter In Critical Condition After ATV Accident
Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter, Maddie Aldridge, was involved in a serious ATV accident on the afternoon of 5th February. The 8 year old niece of pop sensation Britney Spears got the Polaris ATV as a birthday gift a year before and was taking it out for a spin on the family estate when the accident happened. The injuries and complications suffered were as a result of Maddie being submerged under water for more than two minutes as her parents and rescue workers worked hard to free her from the safety belt. She is currently in hospital under critical care.
The local sheriff released an official statement stating that the accident occurred at around 3 PM on Sunday 5th February. Maddie Aldridge was driving the ATV on the family back yard with mother Jamie Lynn and stepfather Jamie Watson watching from a short distance away. The little girl swerved sharply to avoid a ditch and in the process lost control of the ATV which went right into a nearby pond and was immediately submerged with Maddie still inside.
Sending Prayers to Maddie Aldridge the daughter of Jamie Lynn Spears. Also sending prayers to the entire Spears family for god to give them strength in this difficult time. God Bless. May God watch over little Maddie, and her family. Best well wishes to the family. #spearsfamily#maddiealdridge #jamielynnspears #brittanyspears #godbless#sendingprayers#keepingyouallinourprayers#pleaselordhelpMaddie#ourheartsgoouttothefamily#

Her parents witnessed the accident and rushed to the pond within a matter of seconds. However, they were not able to get her out of the ATV on account of the seat belt and other safety mechanisms that left the girl fastened to the ATV until the ambulance and rescue workers arrived a few minutes later with the proper equipment to free her. She was rushed to a nearby hospital in New Orleans.
Spears and her husband Watson released a statement revealing that their daughter was in stable condition but is still under critical care. The injuries suffered were apparently not very serious but the complications from being submerged for more than 2 minutes are the result for her current state.
Most of us remember the controversy that surrounded Jamie Lynn Spear’s teenage pregnancy with Maddie. However, it is safe to say that the singer and songwriter has come a long way both in terms of career and as a parent. During these turbulent times, the Spears and Watson families including Maddie Aldridge’s grandparents and aunt Britney Spears have continued to show the family support including special tributes on social media reflecting the child’s wonderful personality and requesting prayers and wishes for fast and full recovery.
