Jamie Lynn Spears Praises the 'Angels' Who Saved Her Daughter Maddie From Drowning
Jamie Lynn Spears has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.
On Monday, the 26-year-old singer praised the two people who saved her daughter, Maddie, after the 9-year-old girl flipped her ATV in a pond and nearly drowned at stepdad Jamie Watson’s property in Kentwood, Louisiana, back in February. Maddie was in a coma, but made a full recovery, showing no signs of neurological damage.
Spears shared a photo of the paramedics, Victoria Ragoonath and John Fortner, who rushed Maddie to the hospital on that terrifying day. "The hardest milestone me and my family have ever faced was almost losing our beautiful Maddie, but thanks to God and the two angels in this picture we were able to celebrate Maddie turning nine years old all together," she wrote. "This milestone became a true miracle, and we are forever grateful for that."
The former Nickelodeon star posted the same pic in June when Ragoonath and Fortner attended Maddie's birthday party. "We have to thank these TWO HEROES. John and Victoria are the first responders, who literally saved Maddie's life, and they were able to celebrate her another year of her life with us this past weekend!" Spears captioned the image at the time. "Thank God for these amazing people, and thank you God for your amazing grace. We are so blessed today, and everyday with this little angel! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADDIE."
Since the scary incident, Spears has been expressing her gratitude quite a bit on Instagram. Here's a look at what Britney Spears' sister says she learned from the horrific experience:
