Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter Maddie has regained consciousness in hospital following the devastating ATV accident over the weekend that left her in a critical condition.
The sheriff’s office has told PEOPLE in a statement provided by a Spears family rep that the eight-year-old has been removed from a ventilator and is now “awake and talking” with her mother, father (Casey Aldridge), and stepfather (Jamie Watson) at her bedside.
“She is aware of her surroundings and recognises those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident,” the statements reads.
“Doctors were able to removed the ventilator today and she is awake and talking. Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident.”
Maddie was resuscitated by paramedics after the vehicle she was driving flipped over and left her submerged in a pond for several minutes.
Yesterday, Maddie’s aunty Britney Spears took to Instagram to ask fans to pray for the little girl.
“Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece,” she wrote in the heartbreaking post.
