Prayers and well wishes have been sent towards the Spears family during the last few days, and they are definitely needed. The famous family is going through one of the hardest moments – a situation that no one deserves nor wishes upon anyone, not even their worst enemies.
When a child is sick or gets hurt, a cord is struck in everyone’s heart, no matter whether they know the child and their family or not. Simply put, children are the purest and most innocent human beings and it’s incredibly sad to think that something bad can happen to them. They just don’t deserve it. Alas, life isn’t fair and children go through situations that they should never have to go through quite often.
Maddie Aldridge, daughter of Jamie Lynn Spears and niece of the famous Britney Spears, was involved in a horrid accident. Her beloved aunty Brit is now asking her fans for all of their prayers.
The 8-year-old was involved in a traumatic ATV accident near her home in Louisiana. Media outlets report that she is currently in “stable but critical condition” at a New Orleans hospital. The accident took place on Sunday, and according to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Department, it happened when the child crashed a Polaris off-roading vehicle into a pond. Her family, including her mother Jamie Lynn and her step-father Jamie Watson, were just 100 yards away, standing and watching her ride, unsuspecting the drama that was about to happen.
According to the police report, the 8-year-old turned the Polaris ATV in an attempt to avoid running over a drainage ditch (located near the pond), but accidentally over-corrected and ended up crashing the vehicle. The off-roading vehicle was instantly submerged and Maddie, who was naturally wearing a seatbelt, got trapped. Jamie Lynn and Jamie Watson rushed in a matter of seconds to help their child out of the ATV, but were unable to retrieve her. The Acadian Ambulance Service was called and it arrived in a matter of minutes. They managed to free the poor child. Sadly, the drama did not end there for the Spears-Watson family, as Maddie’s body suffered a lot of trauma.
Jamie Lynn took to her Facebook account to thank her fans for their prayers and well wishes, as well as to ask for more. Without any doubt, the family needs a steady flow of positive energy now more than ever. Britney asked for the same thing by writing “Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece,” on her Twitter page.
