Shocking Moment Girl, 16, Is Left Seriously Injured After Cruel Pal Pushes Her Off 60ft Bridge Causing Her To Bellyflop Into The Water

THIS is the terrifying moment a 16-year-old girl was pushed off a 60ft bridge by one of her so-called friends despite yelling “no”.

Jordan Holgerson said she “could have died” after plunging off-balance into the Lewis River in Vancouver, Washington, on Tuesday.

She and her friends had climbed up to the bridge with the intention of jumping but as she stood on the edge, Jordan had second thoughts.

Clearly scared as she looked down at the water below, one of her so-called palls gave her an aggressive and abrupt shove in the back.

Rather than falling feet first and streamlined, Jordan plunged with her arms and legs flailing wildly before hitting the water with almighty clap.

The schoolgirl broke five ribs, punctured her lung and was left with air bubbles in her chest after the horror fall.

KATU Clark County Fire Chief Ben Peeler confirmed it is illegal to jump from the bridge

She later told a local website: “In midair I think I might’ve blacked out… I was awake and aware when I hit the water.”

Someone had to swim out to rescue her before she was taken to the nearby PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver.

Ashley Mahree, the girl who recorded and shared the video online, said: “This looks to be almost criminal.”

She wrote in the YouTube description: “This could have easily taken a life, and I think this girl needs to be held accountable in some way.”

Jordan said her friend has apologised but she is still mad over the push, adding: “It could’ve ended a lot worse.”

Her mother said the Clark County Sheriff’s Office is investigating but it is unclear whether her pal will face criminal charges.

Jordan’s mum told KATU: “My daughter’s gonna have a long road to recovery.
