This young lady could be in VERY big trouble.
Taylor Smith claims that her friend, 16-year old Jordan Holgerson has asked her to give her a shove because she didn’t think she had the nerve to take the plunge.
Holgerson denies that she did so.
After being pushed off of the bridge, Holgerson suffered from multiple injuries. When ClashDaily first reported on the story, it had been reported that Jordan had suffered from 5 broken ribs and one punctured lung. Now, it’s been revealed that both lungs were punctured, and she has another cracked rib as well as the many superficial injuries sustained from hitting the water.
Now Smith may face up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.
She says that she couldn’t imagine the consequences that would result from that push.
The 18-year-old woman who was filmed pushing her teenage friend off a 60-foot bridge has been charged with reckless endangerment.
Prosecutors announced the charge against Taylor Smith on Friday after 16-year-old Jordan Holgerson was left severely injured from the August 7 incident in Washington state.
The charge, first reported by ABC News, has a punishment of up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $5,000.
It comes after Taylor had earlier claimed that Jordan asked her to push her off the Moulton Falls Bridge because she was scared.
The shocking incident was caught on video where Smith was heard cajoling Holgerson to jump.

Despite her hesitation, Taylor can be heard saying: ‘Just go you promised you would do it. Taylor, I’m going to push you.’
‘I don’t care. I’d jump in there to save you if anything happens. Jordan, I got you,’ Taylor said as she tried to reassure her friend.
She can be heard saying ‘stop talking’ just seconds before she shoved Jordan in the back, causing the teenager to belly flop into the water 60-feet below.
After the incident, Jordan’s brother texted Smith and asked, ‘Did she jump or did she get pushed?‘ Smith replied, ‘I was there but didn’t see what fully happened.‘
Watch an exclusive interview on Good Morning America:
In the wake of the incident garnering international attention, Smith carried on with her life and partied with friends as though nothing had happened.
Initially, Jordan didn’t want her ‘friend’ to face charges, but as she realizes how lucky she is to be alive, she has reconsidered and stated that perhaps some jail time for Smith to think about what she did is in order. She also said that Smith and her family should cover some of the medical expenses that her family has borne due to the incident.
‘Now that I’ve thought about it more, I’m kind of wanting her to sit in jail and think about at least what she did,’ Jordan said in an interview with Today.
While Taylor has apologized and said she ‘feels really bad about what happened’, the injured teen doesn’t believe it is enough.
‘I had five broken ribs, and we just found out I have another broken rib, and I had two punctured lungs,’ Jordan said.
‘I’m in a lot of pain. In the mornings it’s the worst. It hurts to breathe, my side hurts, my shoulder hurts, I can’t even get up.
‘I’m probably going to be recovering for the rest of the school year.’

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office has completed its investigation and forwarded the case to the prosecutor’s office for ‘appropriate charging.’
Smith has cooperated with authorities throughout the investigation.

In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
