BRITNEY ASKS FANS TO PRAY FOR NIECE
Maddie is in critical but stable condition after her off-road vehicle crashed into a pond
American singer Britney
Spears (above) has asked fans to send “prayers” to niece Maddie (above left) as she remains in hospital following an accident. Maddie, 8, is in critical but stable condition after her off-road vehicle (ATV) crashed into a pond, leaving her submerged in water for two minutes. Alongside a photo of Maddie, Britney wrote: “Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece”, reports mirror.co.uk.
On February 5, Maddie was steering the ATV, and in order to avoid going over a drainage ditch, she ended up entering the pond. She was apparently instantly submerged in the water right before her parents’ eyes. Within seconds the family reached the pond, and attempted to rescue the child to no avail. Maddie was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV’s safety netting, they say.
