Finally, some good news regarding Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter Maddie. 

According to People, the singer's daughter is "awake and talking" following Sunday's ATV accident in Kentwood, Louisiana. On Tuesday, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Department released a statement that was given to People via Spears' family rep: 

“With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, February 7. The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, La. 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.”

On Sunday, Maddie was riding her Polaris ATV when she swerved to avoid a drainage ditch. The ATV flipped into a pond, and Maddie became submerged under water for several minutes.

Jamie Lynn Spears and her husband, Jamie Watson, immediately rushed to her rescue, but could not release her from her seatbelt. Medics arrived within two minutes and assisted in freeing her.
