Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Actress and singer Jamie Lynn Spears' 8-year-old daughter, Maddie Aldridge, is hospitalized in critical but stable condition after an ATV mishap in Lousiana.
Unnamed sources told TMZ she was airlifted to a hospital Sunday after a Polaris off-road vehicle she was riding overturned.
"The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn's daughter Maddie are incorrect. Right now the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family," Spears' representative told E! News late Sunday, without stating which part of the story Spears is disputing.
The horrifying incident unfolded in front of Spears and Maddie's step-father, Jamie Watson.
"The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before their eyes," the report explained. "Within seconds the child's mother, step-father and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail. The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV's safety netting. Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters."
Jamie Lynn, the younger sister of pop-music icon Britney Spears, was the 16-year-old star of the TV sitcom Zoey 101 when she announced in 2007 she was pregnant. The show was canceled soon after.
Jamie Lynn took a break from the spotlight for several years and has recently been working on a country-music career.
