Jamie Lynn Spears’ 8-Year-Old Daughter Hospitalized After ATV Accident

Singer/songwriter Jamie Lynn Spears’ 8-year-old daughter, Maddie, was hospitalized on Sunday, Feb. 5, after an ATV accident in which the child drove into a pond on family property and was submerged for a short period of time.

According to a statement on People by Tangipahoa Parish sheriff Daniel Edwards, the accident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. on Feb. 5. Maddie was driving an ATV when she “over-corrected causing the ATV to enter the pond. The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before their [Jamie Lynn and stepfather Jamie Watson] eyes.

“Within seconds the child’s mother, stepfather and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail. The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV’s safety netting. Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters.

“This is an extremely tragic accident. The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking you to keep this family in your constant prayers as they try to cope with this horrible incident. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time of need.”

According to reports, Maddie was airlifted to a hospital in New Orleans where she is in critical, but stable, condition.

Last night (Feb. 6), Maddie’s aunt, Britney Spears, posted a Tweet asking for prayers.
