Jamie Lynn Spears’ eight-year-old daughter Maddie is reportedly in “serious condition” after being involved in an ATV accident on Sunday that resulted in her being “under water for several minutes and unconscious.”
TMZ broke the story, but did not have a lot of details:
Several sources in Kentwood, Louisiana tell TMZ, Maddie was on a Polaris off-road vehicle when it flipped over. We’re told she was under water for several minutes and unconscious.
Our sources say she was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
The site says she is in “serious condition” and mentions that she was “involved in a hunting expedition at the time of the accident.”
In the photo at the top of this post you can see Maddie driving a Polaris RZR 170 with her mom Jamie beside her. This photo was posted in November, but it is unclear if it is the same ATV.
As far as being on a hunting expedition, Maddie often accompanied her step-dad Jamie Watson on duck hunting trips. Here she is in a duck blind with her mom and stepdad in a photo shared on the same day as the ATV picture:
TMZ says Jamie Lynn Spears was not with her daughter at the time of the accident, but it is not clear if Maddie was with Jamie Watson. Earlier on Sunday, Maddie’s stepdad posted a serene photo of a body of water with a treeline in the distance and wrote: “Life on the pond…”
Our thoughts are with the Spears and Watson families at this time. We will update when we know more.
