The power of millions of prayers has proven to be incredibly strong in the case of Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter, Maddie Aldridge. Following a terrifying ATV accident in which the eight-year-old flipped her vehicle and was trapped underwater, the little girl is now said to be on the mend.
According to PEOPLE, a statement was given by a family representative to the Tangipahoa Sheriff’s Department explaining:
With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, February 7. The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, La. 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.
We continue to keep Maddie, Jamie Lynn Spears, and the rest of the family in our prayers on this road to recovery, and we encourage you all to do the same, pursuant to the family’s requests.
