Britney spears posted this message to her Instagram account to let the public know her niece is making progress.
On Sunday, 8 year old Maddie Aldridge was involved in a devastating ATV accident. Aldridge is the daughter of Spears' little sister, Jamie lynn.
The family released a statement and was featured on the People website,
“With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, Feb. 7,” her hospital tells PEOPLE in a statement provided by a Spears family rep. “The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, Louisiana. Paramedics resuscitated her and she was airlifted to a local hospital. She is aware of her surroundings and recognizes those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident.”

The statement continues: “Doctors were able to remove 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.”

In a police report obtained by People says, Aldridge was driving an ATV within view of her mom and her stepdad,  Jamie Watson, when she "took a hard right to avoid running over a nearby drainage ditch, causing the vehicle to "enter the pond on her parents property. The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before their eyes. Within seconds the child’s mother, stepfather 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.”

Glad to hear Maddie is on the mend.
