Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter Maddie Aldridge was listed in critical but stable condition after the 8-year-old was seriously injured in an ATV accident Sunday afternoon in the Fluker, Louisiana, area.

Authorities and a family representative told the Hammond Daily Star that the Polaris all-terrain vehicle the girl was driving fell into a pond, severely injuring her. Investigators think she maneuvered the ATV to avoid running into a drainage ditch on the property but overcorrected, sending the vehicle into a nearby pond.

Spears, who lives in nearby Kentwood, is a singer, actress and sister of pop star Britney Spears."Entertainment Tonight" quoted her father, Jamie Spears as saying, "All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie."

Sources told TMZ that the ATV flipped over and that the girl was "under water for several minutes and unconscious."

A statement from the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office confirmed that Maddie was submerged inside the ATV, according to the Daily Star. Investigators told the newspaper that family members were about 100 yards away when the incident happened.

"The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV's safety netting," Sheriff Daniel Edwards said, according to the Daily Star. "Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters."

"This is an extremely tragic accident. The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office is asking you to keep this family in your constant prayers as they try to cope with this horrible incident. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time of need."

A representative for Britney Spears told "Entertainment Tonight" that reported information about the case was "incorrect," but did not specify which details.

"The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn's daughter Maddie are incorrect," the representative told "Entertainment Tonight." "Right now the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family."
