A young woman featured in a viral prank video in which she pushed her unsuspecting friend off of a bridge has been charged with reckless endangerment, according to the New York Post.
“Prosecutors in Clark County, Washington, announced charges against 18-year-old Taylor Smith on Friday, claiming she ‘created a substantial risk of death or serious physical injury’ when she shoved Jordan Holgerson, 16, near Moulton Falls on Aug. 7,” the Post reported.
Holgerson - Lung - Ribs - Esophagus - Fall
Holgerson punctured a lung, broke five ribs and bruised her esophagus in the fall.
According to KGW-TV, Holgerson plunged 50 feet out of control before she hit the water.

The video shows Holgerson saying she won’t jump off the bridge followed by her friend pushing her into the water.
Clark County Deputy Prosecutor Laurel Smith told reporters a number of factors went into the decision to charge Smith with reckless endangerment — a charge that carries up to a year in jail.
Victim - Wishes - Strength - Evidence - Smith
“Sometimes we’re looking at victim’s wishes, what they want to see happen. We look at the strength of the evidence,” Smith said, according to KGW. “We look at the defendant’s maturity level, their age.”
