Credit Today

In it a woman tells Holgerson to "just go" and "I'm going to push you".

KOIN reported that Taylor Smith, 18, faces a charge of reckless endangerment after shoving 16-year-old Jordan Holgerson off a bridge August 7 at Moulton Falls.

Holgerson said Smith and her family should be responsible for some of the medical expenses that Holgerson's family has incurred.

Jordan's sister, Vanessa, told CBS Portland affiliate KOIN she believed Smith "tried to do it jokingly and didn't think what could have happened".

Smith said she was shocked that Holgerson wanted her to go to jail, because the two had been friends for many years.

The teenager who pushed her friend off of a 60-foot bridge - causing the girl to puncture a lung, bruise her esophagus and shatter five ribs - has been charged with reckless endangerment.

18-year-old Tay'lor Ce'Lon Smith was charged with one count of reckless endangerment Friday.

"She wanted to jump and she was scared and she had asked me to give her a push, and I didn't think about the consequences", Smith said.

"I don't think that's what kids do to have fun", Holgerson said. I'm really sorry it turned out that way.

Jordon says she received a single apology from Taylor via text.

She clarified that she did not have any malicious or ill intent in the act. "Taylor was definitely lying in her interview yesterday because I can't imagine asking Taylor to push me off a bridge".

"I never meant to hurt her, ever, " said Smith, "nor would I never intend to hurt anyone".

Seeing Holgerson's response change from forgiveness to complete silence wasn't surprising for Smith. Then Smith puts her hands on Holgerson's shoulders and sends her flying off the ledge. Jordan also admitted that she may even sue Taylor "if it gets to that point". She added that at the end of the day, she just hopes her friend will have a quick recovery.
