A Washington teenager says she is grateful to be alive after being pushed off a bridge earlier this month.
Look at this video, it captures 16 year old Jordan Holgersson screaming as she was forcefully pushed off the Moulton Falls bridge falling 60 feet below.
You can hear her hit the water, she suffered several broken ribs, a bruised esophagus and an injured trachea.
Holgersson said she initially wanted to jump off the bridge but got cold feet.
On August 14th, police announced the investigation into the incident had been completed, they have identified the girl who pushed Holgersson off the bridge as Taylor Smith.
The 18 year old suspect has allegedly sent apologetic messages to Holgersson however, the victim's mother feels her apologies are insincere and thinks Smith should be jailed for her actions.
The Clark County Major Crimes Unit has forwarded the case to prosecutors who will determine whether Smith will face charges.
