In early February of 2017, the life of 8-year-old Maddie Aldridge and daughter to country singer Jamie Lynn Spears was nearly taken after the young girl crashed an ATV in a lake near their home. Jamie Lynn and her husband struggled to free her from the vehicle for many minutes until the first responders arrived on the scene.
Quickly after arriving, the rescue personnel freed Maddie, the young girl remaining unconscious for two days following the incident. The family was left distraught waiting for Maddie to become conscious, wondering if she would suffer long-term affects from nearly drowning.
However, in what can only be described as a miracle, the young girl was given a clean bill of health. Now several months later, Maddie celebrated her ninth birthday on June 19, a joyous occasion only made possible by the first responders who saved her, John and Victoria.
“My baby is 9 years old today, and more then [sic] ever we realize how precious every day is. So, we have to thank these 2 HEROES.” wrote a thankful Jamie Lynn. “John and Victoria are the first responders, who literally saved Maddie’s life, and they were able to celebrate her another year of her life with us this past weekend! Thank God for these amazing people, and thank you God for your amazing grace. We are so blessed today, and everyday [sic] with this little angel! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADDIE.”
The young girl spent her ninth birthday with her friends, close family, and the two heroes who made the whole day possible. The two posed with the newly turned 9-year-old at her pool party for a photo, later shared to Jamie Lynn’s Instagram with the more than grateful caption.
