On Sunday, the 8-year-old was underwater for several minutes after an ATV that she was riding flipped over into a pond in Louisiana. The child was airlifted to a local hospital.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said family members were nearby when the accident occurred, but they were unable to free Maddie from her seatbelt and the safety netting on the all-terrain vehicle. Maddie was reported in stable, but critical condition.

On Tuesday afternoon, a rep for the Spears family revealed she was “awake and talking.”
