Singer Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter is awake after a near-fatal all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accident on Feb 5.
Eight-year-old Maddie was left unconscious in a pond on the family estate after attempting to avoid a drainage ditch and flipping the ATV. She was airlifted to a nearby hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Her grandfather, Jamie Lynn's dad Jamie, and aunt Britney Spears urged fans to keep the family in their thoughts and prayers as Maddie fought for life in critical condition. All those prayers were answered and she woke up yesterday.
A statement from the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Department read, "With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, February 7.”
The statement added, “She is aware of her surroundings and recognises those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident."
Doctors have removed a ventilator that was helping to keep Maddie alive, but she is still being monitored closely.
