From what I've heard,(this is from the rumor mill), she was taking a bath, getting ready for school. She had a seizure in the tub and was under water for some time. From what I understand, they revived her and found no brain activity. She passed away shortly after.

A full article should be in the Williamson Daily News tomorrow.

Again, my heart goes out to these people.
so very tragic

To answer the question of what happened, she was in the bathtub and had a seziure and drowned. The medics did get a pulse back, but she was put on a ventilator because she wasn't breathing. She was flown to another hospital from WMH, and was later pronounced brain dead - there was a story about it in the WDN, and something is suppose to be on the 11:00 p.m. WSAZ news tonight.
The entire community is praying for the family, and everyone is devastated by the news. Only someone who has lost a loved one that was young can truly understand the extent of their grief. Their family needs all the love, support, prayer and encouragement we can possibly give them. What a tragic day it has been for this little town. Rest in peace Madison....

I don't think it is appropriate to post on here what happened out of respect of the family. Please, if you know her family or someone that is close to Maddi ask in private.

Please understand God does NOT do things like this...sometimes He ALLOWS situations in life to take it's course but in no way did God do this.

Why God Takes Little Children

When God calls little children
to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.

For no heartache compares with,
the death of one small child.
Who does so much to make our world,
seem so wonderful and mild.

Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.

God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes but few.
To make the land of heaven
more beautiful to view.

Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be Good-bye.

So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children.
and ANGELS ARE HARD TO FIND!

It's so hard to look outside and not see you, or hear that laugh. You will always be missed, and be in our hearts. RIP Maddison Paige....I love you Babygirl

like I said earlier, I was not trying to be callous or insensitive. I checked the daily news (WDN), called the very few people I still know in the area, and couldn't find any info. I just thought since this forum was about her, it would be an appropriate question to ask as to what happened. I am sorry if I upset anyone, that was not my intention. My heart breaks for this family. I hope God and their community embraces them in their time of need. It is truely a heartbreaking story.

I am sorry if I hurt your feelings, that was not my intentions. Our family (no blood relations to Maddi, just friends) is devastated and to have the circumstances repeated on here is like a stab in the heart. Like I said earlier, I wish you could have known her. You know, we meet people during the course of life and most of them will be forgotten, but not Maddi. That baby was like sunshine and in the short time we have known her (just a few years) she was a part of everyday living that we looked forward to and to have her gone makes us mad and hurt and left with unanswered feelings. I don't know how I will explain this to our grandbabies (kids absolutely LOVED this girl). I spent some time with her sister today and all we could do was hug each other & cry, because life can be cruel and can touch us in ways that will tear our heart out. This is the second death of a child in our close community in a few months. How, can someone tell me please, how do we explain to our babies & grandbabies that that sweet child will no longer be with us. I simply had no answers to Kinzie today when we talked. How do you help a child get over the devestation? We as adults seem to understand that although it feels like we will break apart with grief, we know time does help, but how do we explain that to a 10 year old, and to the toddlers that sweet girl loved? I just pray that God just takes over because I have no answers and as hurt and devestated I am, I can't even BEGIN to imagine what her family is going through. I have never lost a child, but have lost my Dad, and that in itself nearly killed me (nervous breakdown & all), so I can't understand what her parents and siblings and grandparents must be going through. It's hurts so bad that it makes me angry that that sweet baby had to leave this world so young! So, please pray, pray & pray some more. This baby touched so, so many lives with her goofy ol sunshine self. It was an honor that God saw fit to bless our lives with this sweet, crazy, goofy, friendly, warm, caring, loving, kind, generous, sweet, sweet little baby girl. Thank You God !

Miss Maddy was a bubbly, vibrant young girl. And she will deeply be missed by everyone. I know I loved her lil spunky attitude. To Her Family, You are in my prayers. Know God has a purpose for everything. Sometimes we may not understand why. But He knows. Trust and lean on him. For he is THE ONLY ONE who can help you through these rough times. He is the only one who can comfort you. I love you. And am yet praying for you.

And please for the families sake, lets try and keep this forum respectful. They (the family) have enough troubles at this time. God Bless!

Farah honey, I am so, so sorry you too lost a child. I can't even begin to imagine the heart wrenching hurt you must have felt. Yes, please keep this family and community in your prayers, because that sweet baby gave so much joy the short time she was here. I pray God keeps you uplifted and that you never, ever have to endure such a loss again! I also pray that God shows the light that is still there during this time of Maddi's passing!

Madison was probably one of the sweetest children I have ever known. There was never a time that she didn't run up and hug me and ask about my daughter. I didn't see her every day, but when I did, it was a blessing because her smile could light up the darkest of days. It's hard to say that she is gone, but she is definitely in the best place she could be. God is embracing her as we speak. But I know she's smiling down on every single person in her life;; and if she could, she would say to rejoice her life. She was a spunky, active, affectionate child that no one will ever forget. May God be with Kinzie and the rest of the family. I pray that God comforts them;; especially Kinzie. I never saw one without the other. Just pray and let them know you are there. It's the best comfort.
