After violently pushing her friend from a bridge into a river 50 feet below, where she sustained a punctured lung and six broken ribs, a Washington State teen has been charged with reckless endangerment.
The video of the incident went viral earlier this month. Jordan Holgerson, 16, was hesitant to jump into the river in Moulton Falls Regional Park herself, so her friend decided to push her in.
Taylor Smith, 18, who was standing behind Jordan, can be heard telling her to "just go ... I'm going to push you."
"I didn't think about the consequences. I thought she would be fine... I accept what the prosecutor thinks best for me."— Good Morning America (@GMA) August 17, 2018
