    Maddy Brum is recovering after being hit by a car travelling at 30mph

    The 19-year-old - propelled to fame by featuring in the second season of Netflix's reality show 'Cheer', which follows Texas-based cheerleading squad Navarro - was crossing the road when she was struck, landing her in hospital and leaving her feeling "blessed" to be alive


    Alongside a photograph of her in an ER bed posted Thursday (23.06.22), she said on Instagram she felt lucky to have escaped more severe injuries.

    She added: "I'm feeling extra blessed today. Blessed to be alive and blessed to be surrounded by people who give me nothing but happiness and comfort. Two days ago, Angel, James, Jay and I were crossing the street at a cross walk, where a car turned and drove into me at 20-30 mph.

    Luckily, I only left with bruises and cuts on my body.

    "Thank you to my people @amazingjamestho @qangel_rice @thejaykendrick for being by my side and making sure I was safe and okay. I have the bestest friends. Thank you to @cheertourofficial for helping me at the hospital, as well as getting an orthopaedic surgeon to make sure I was okay to still do what I love."

    The cheerleader insisted she would go ahead with the ongoing 'Cheer'

    national tour of the US, adding: "I will be doing the tour to the best of my ability for the next few shows. I am so unbelievably thankful that I am still alive and still get the opportunity to do what I love."

    Until her full recovery, Brum's place on the tour is being filled by fellow Navarro cheerleader Deidra Lizette.

    She paid tribute to her colleague by adding: "Thank you @deidraa_lizette for being a ROCKSTAR and coming in on such short notice while I'm recovering. I love you all! Thank you."

    Brum's 'Cheer' teammates and her fans rushed to send well-wishes, with Gabi Butler saying on Instagram: "I love you, Madison! I got them guardian angels around you!"

    Navarro coach Monica Aldama commented: "I'm so thankful it wasn't worse!

    I love you!"
