According to the police report obtained by ET, shortly before 3 p.m. on Sunday, Maddie was steering her ATV to avoid running over a drainage ditch near a pond on the family property in Louisiana when she "overcorrected," and caused the vehicle to enter the pond.

"The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV's safety netting," the report reads. "Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters."

Maddie is currently in stable but critical condition.
