Teen girl pushed off bridge into river, breaks five ribs

Teen Suffers Broken Ribs After Being Shoved off Bridge Into Water in Washington

Jordan Holgerson, 16, said she had never jumped from the bridge at Moulton Falls Regional Park, and after being pushed off its edge and injured as a result, she doesn't plan to anytime in the future. [Holgerson] is young and healthy and so she's got a lot of reserve.

One person is heard yelling a countdown, and when the teen doesn't jump, another person is seen pushing her off the bridge - her arms flail out as she appears to fall toward the water torso-first.

Then, a pair of hands from what was reportedly an impatient family friend is seen coming into the shot and shoving Jordan off of the bridge.

The teen plunged into the water below and landed with a horrifying thud as her friends gasped.

'Oh, that's so f****d, ' someone can be heard saying off-camera.

Jordan suffered five cracked ribs and internal injuries.

Deputies say they have identified the person who pushed Holgerson, but so far, no charges have been filed.

Jordan said her friend has since said sorry, but that her apologies are not enough.

"And then an EMT that was off-duty helped me onto the rocks and just a whole bunch of people surrounding me were helping me, calming me down", Holgerson said. Going forward, she can't do anything active for six weeks while her lungs and ribs heal.

"She'll be in the hospital until her pain is controlled", trauma care surgeon MaryClare Sarff said. "She is an adult, and I'm sure she should have known better".

Jordan's sister Kaytlin said she confronted the friend on social media, saying a true friend wouldn't have done that.

'Friends don't push someone from that high so I was p***ed, ' Kaytlin said.

'This looks to be nearly criminal...this could have easily taken a life, ' Mahree wrote in the YouTube description.

Clark County Fire Chief Ben Peeler has previously said that jumping from the height is illegal.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident, Sgt. Brent Waddell told The Oregonian.
