Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter out of hospital after ATV accident

Singer Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter has left the hospital five days after a near fatal all-terrain vehicle accident in Louisiana.

Britney Spears' eight-year-old niece Maddie almost drowned in a pond at the family's estate in Kentwood on Sunday (05Feb17) after flipping the ATV as she attempted to steer past a drainage cover.

She lost consciousness and was airlifted to a New Orleans hospital, where she spent the rest of this week.

Maddie regained consciousness on Tuesday (07Feb17) and on Friday (10Feb17) doctors agreed she was well enough to go home.

Editors at news show Extra have obtained a photo of the little girl leaving the hospital with her beaming, shoeless mom, who appeared to have given her daughter her slippers to wear for the journey home.

Maddie's famous aunt, Britney Spears, flew to Louisiana earlier this week (beg06Feb17), and took to Instagram on Thursday (09Feb17) to thank fans for their support.

"We are so grateful to share that Maddie is making progress, she wrote. "Thank you all for sending thoughts and prayers our way. Let's keeping praying (sic)."
