Maddie Aldridge is so much stronger than any of us! Just two weeks ago, the eight-year-old was in serious risk of dying after getting into a critical ATV accident. After her miraculous recovery, she’s not letting anything slow her down. Like any resilient kid, she was already back playing with her friends without a care in the world.
Mom Jamie Lynn Spears, 25, was clearly emotional about Maddie’s triumphant return to the basketball court. She posted the sweetest video of her little girl on Instagram at basketball practice on February 21, captioned “1st Basketball practice today 🏀 #Godisgood 🙏” We can’t imagine what Jamie has been through in these past two weeks! Seeing her daughter thrive must be overwhelming.
Poor Maddie was riding in an off road vehicle on her family’s property in Kentwood, Louisiana, on February 5, when the ATV spiraled out of control and veered into a pond. Maddie was trapped underwater for two minutes as people frantically tried to rescue her. Her family feared for her life after the terrifying accident, but Maddie defied all odds and pulled through beautifully. She’s been growing and thriving ever since, even visiting her classroom to give her friends valentines on February 14!
