If you didn't believe in miracles before, Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter Maddie has given you every reason to believe now.
The 8-year old continues to improve after an ATV accident nearly took her life on Sunday (February 5). Maddie was left unconscious after flipping an ATV into a pond and being underwater for at least 2 minutes before help arrived. She was then airlifted to a nearby hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In a statement released Tuesday (February 7), the hospital announced that Maddie was now awake and breathing on her own.
“With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, Feb. 7. The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, Louisiana. Paramedics resuscitated her and she was airlifted to a local hospital. She is aware of her surroundings and recognizes those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident.”
“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.”
Jamie Lynn Spears, the 25-year old sister of pop star Britney Spears, has remained silent about the accident, but both of her parents have requested prayer for their granddaughter.
Tuesday afternoon, Jamie Lynn's husband, Jamie Watson, posted an update to Instagram saying, “Thank you everyone for the prayers. Maddie is doing better and better. Thank y’all so much."
Our prayers continue to be with Maddie and her family.
