According to a police report obtained by ET earlier this week, Maddie was steering her off-road vehicle to avoid running over a drainage ditch near a pond on the family's property in Kentwood, Louisiana, when she "overcorrected," causing the vehicle to enter the pond. 

Maddie was trapped underwater for two minutes as Jamie Lynn and Watson tried to rescue her before paramedics arrived.
