Washington Teen Shoved off Bridge in Horrifying Video

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

In a harrowing moment captured on video, a Washington teen is pushed by a friend from a bridge more than 50 feet high.

Jordan Holgerson, 16, suffered five cracked ribs and a lung injury.

“I could have died,” Holgerson said. “In midair, I think I might have blacked out, but I was awake and aware when I hit the water.”

The location is reportedly a popular location for kids to leap into the water.

In the video, kids can be heard counting “three, two, one.” Holgerson appears to hesitate before being pushed by a girl standing behind her.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident. No charges have been filed.

“I’m very upset with her. She is an adult, and I’m sure she should have known better. She could have killed my daughter," Genelle Holgerson, Jordan's mother, told WCVB.

The friend has since apologized. 

This isn’t the first time a teen has suffered major injuries after leaping off bridges.

Tyler Weight, who did a back flip off a bridge into the Spokane River in Washington, was knocked out and had to be resuscitated after his leap.

Fortunately, he survived.
