VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A woman accused of injuring her 16-year-old friend when she pushed the teen off a bridge in Washington state has been charged with reckless endangerment.
KGW reports that charging documents filed by the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney's office say Taylor Smith created "a substantial risk of death or serious physical injury" to the 16-year-old girl.
Jordan Holgerson was pushed off a bridge Aug. 7 at Moulton Falls northeast of Vancouver, Washington, and fell 60 feet. She suffered injuries ranging from broken ribs to punctured lungs.
New video obtained by NBC News shows a woman urging Holgerson to jump. In it a woman tells Holgerson to "just go" and "I'm going to push you."
Video that was posted earlier on YouTube and later removed shows Holgerson standing on the bridge with friends. Then a woman forcefully pushes her off the span.
