Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood's 6-year-old daughter Ruby is in critical but stable condition following a pool accident Friday in Los Angeles.

The family released a statement Monday updating her medical condition.

The statement read in part: "Ruby was the victim of an accident that is potentially extremely serious, but she is doing quite well and the medical staff here at Cedars is optimistic that she will make a full recovery," according to Dr. Keith Kimble, attending staff at the Cedars-Sinai Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

The release also cleared up how the accident occurred. Contrary to recent Internet reports, Ruby, who was on a playdate with her twin sister Tessa at a pool in the Hidden Hills area of Los Angeles, was not doing cartwheels near the pool and did not hit her head.

According to the Fleetwood family, the 6 year old was doing somersaults in the pool, became disoriented, and must have swallowed a high quantity of water.

After becoming unconscious, she was revived by CPR, then taken to West Hills Hospital where she was stabilized. She was later transferred to Cedars-Sinai Pediatric ICU where she is currently being treated.
