Teen Seen Pushing Girl Off Bridge In Viral Video Now Facing Charges

18-year-old Taylor Smith, who pushed her, apologised to Jordan's sister on social media saying she was sorry and would not have done it if she had known the outcome.

The prosecutors filed the charge on August 17 along with part of the arresting officer's statement which read, "It is clear that Taylor Smith engaged in conduct which created a substantial risk of death and resulted in serious physical injury to Jordan Holgerson,"ABC reported".

Jordan Holgerson was pushed off a bridge August 7 at Moulton Falls northeast of Vancouver, Washington, and fell 60 feet.

The fall resulted in serious injuries for Holgerson including broken ribs and punctured lungs.

In response to the news, Holgerson said the misdemeanor charge is not enough. In it a woman tells Holgerson to "just go" and "I'm going to push you".

State funeral held in Genoa for bridge collapse victims
According to the Italian press agency ANSA, the family's auto was crushed by a concrete block from the bridge in Genoa. President Sergio Mattarella paused in silence before the coffins then spoke briefly with each group of families.

Video of the treacherous fall went viral and shows friends egging Holgerson on as she nervously debated jumping.

In addition to disputing Taylor's claim, Jordan talked about the punishment she'd like her friend to see so she can deal with the consequences of her actions. A 47-year-old man had to be rescued by emergency crews after taking the 60-foot plummet in July last year.

It was not immediately clear if Smith had an attorney.

After the incident, Holgerson said in an interview that Smith should "sit in jail and think about ... what she did".

Debbra McEldowney said Friday that she hopes wounds are healed, both physical and emotional. "What am I supposed to do?" She said that she didn't know what it was like to be in Holgerson's position-to have people give her their opinions on what had happened, and to have her feelings change along the way. "I think there should be some because the bill that we have definitely wasn't my fault so it wasn't needed for us to pay for it so I think Taylor's family should help pay for it".
