Jamie Lynn Spears’s daughter is reportedly in critical condition after she was involved in an ATV accident on Sunday in Kentwood, La.
According to TMZ, Britney Spear’s eight-year-old niece Maddie was submerged underwater for several minutes after the ATV she was riding flipped. Maddie was “unconscious” and airlifted to a New Orleans hospital.
A statement from the family’s publicist disputes the details in TMZ’s report.
