Earlier this year, singer Britney Spears and her family received some terrible news. The pop star's eight-year-old nice, Maddie, was involved in a serious ATV accident and sustained life-threatening injuries.
Maddie was riding in an off-road vehicle in Kentwood, Los Angeles when it flipped over, sending her into a nearby pond, where she remained unconscious for several minutes.
The young girl was airlifted to a nearby hospital where she was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). She was hospitalized for five days before she was cleared to go home with her mother, Spears's sister, Jamie-Lynn, and stepfather, Jamie Watson, by her side.
Jamie-Lynn did not address the incident for a while, but when she was ready, she took to social media to express how she felt.
A few months ago, she said she was living a "mother's worst nightmare," when the accident occurred. She added, "I'll never stop thanking each of you for your prayers, because we recognize the miracle it created. We are beyond blessed, and we will NEVER forget y'all, and God's unbelievable mercy."
Jamie-Lynn, Britney, and the rest of the family ensured Maddie returned back to her regularly scheduled activities like attending school, celebrating holidays like Valentine's Day, and hanging out at Disney World with her cousins.
Ten months after "almost losing" her daughter, Jamie-Lynn is finally comfortable with sharing more details about the accident, and thanks the "angels" who saved Maddie.
