Jamie Lynn Spears is no doubt breathing a sigh of relief now that her daughter Maddie is awake and talking following a horrific ATV accident that landed the little girl submerged into a pond for several minutes before being rescued unconscious.
The 8-year-old was operating the vehicle on the family's property before overcorrecting her steering in order to avoid a drainage ditch. Maddie ultimately drove straight into the nearby body of water and became completely submerged and, tragically, unremovable due to her fastened seat belt and heavy netting surrounding the machine.
Maddie was unconscious for days, deemed in very critical, but stable, condition. Yesterday, the family broke the news that the little girl had finally awoken, as her step-father informed fans via Instagram that Maddie was "doing better and better". Today, the girl's aunt and international super star Britney Spears reached out to her fans to give an incredibly hopeful and uplifting update.
"We are so grateful to share that Maddie is making progress," Spears explained in a screen shot. As she thanked her followers for their warm thoughts and well wishes, she asked that we all keep praying for Maddie and the road to recovery that lays before her.
You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers, Maddie! You can share your kind thoughts and wishes below.
