There’s sad news for the Spears family.
Jamie Lynn Spears and her husband watched as their daughter, Maddie, drive in her ATV, a present they got her for a birthday.
Unfortunately, they watched in horror as the ATV flipped into a pond while Maddie was trapped inside.
Obviously this was a terrifying thing to see, and certainly a terrifying experience for Maddie, who is only 8-years-old.
Jamie desperately tried to pull her out and save her, but she couldn’t free Maddie from her safety belt.
The eight-year-old was eventually rescued by paramedics when the ambulance arrived within just a couple minutes. She was rushed to a hospital.
Maddie is still in the hospital where she is in a critical but stable condition.
Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said the accident occurred shortly before 3 pm on Sunday at the family home.
