Taylor Smith the Washington woman who pushed Jordan Holgerson 60ft off Moulton Falls Bridge is said to be unrepentant as social media now demands justice.
The 18 year old teen girl who almost killed Kalama, Washington teen, Jordan Holgerson after pushing her off a 60ft bridge has defied her critics saying she isn’t sorry and doesn’t care.
Identified as 18 year old local, Taylor Smith, social media photos show the unrepentant teen partying at Clark County Fair just days after the incident without any remorse.
The incident left her pal, Jordan with five broken ribs and a punctured lung when she was shoved into Moulton Falls on the Lewis River in Yacolt, Washington last Tuesday.
A regard of the teen’s Facebook page, who goes by Tay’lor Smith shows the teen working at Dutch Bros Coffee, although sources say she is unemployed and lives with her grandmother.
A source close to the family told UK’s Sun: ‘Taylor has been going out as if nothing happened.
‘Taylor hasn’t been to visit Jordan to see if she is ok. She clearly doesn’t care.
‘She messaged Jordan to say sorry but nobody thinks it was a sincere apology.’
Video showing Jordan hesitating to jump and the moment her friend pushes her has gone viral.

Speaking to the dailymail, Jordan’s aunt, Kristie Morgan said ‘she went home last night and woke up crying in pain this morning.
‘She has a hard time breathing and it gives her a panic attack which makes it even harder to breathe. She is really suffering physically and emotionally.’
Despite the pain, Kristie said her niece is ‘in great spirits’ and has decided not to seek ‘revenge’ against the woman who pushed her.
‘Jordan is truly the sweetest girl in the world. It doesn’t matter what someone does to her she always has someone’s best interest at heart. She doesn’t wish to seek revenge on her friend. But in my opinion her friend needs to learn a lesson,’ Kristie said.
‘She could have killed her and it wouldn’t be a question at all if she was in trouble for her actions. She would be in jail right now. But that is how Jordan feels,’ she added.
‘It’s hard to see her baby like that. I cry every time I’m with Jordan. It’s painful to watch her move around and I really wish I could take the pain for her,’ she said.
Jordan has since been diagnosed incurring five cracked ribs, a bruised esophagus, an injured trachea, air bubbles in her chest and a punctured lung.
‘She is lucky she is not paralyzed or dead,’ her mother, Genelle told Thoroughbred Daily News.
Jordan’s mother has since revealed that the friend who pushed Jordan into the water is an adult.
‘I’m very upset with her,’ said the mother-of-four, who believes the girl should turn herself in. ‘She is an adult, and I’m sure she should have known better.’
Jordan said her friend has since said sorry, but that her apologies are not enough.
‘I could’ve died,’ she said. ‘It could’ve ended a lot worse, is what I’m thinking about.’
While Holgerson conceded having initially planned to jump after climbing the bridge only to have second thoughts, the teen said the push was a different story.
Jordan Holgerson says she doesn’t like that the video of her being pushed has gone viral, says “There’s too many notifications on my phone.” https://t.co/4QyqRqVO0L

Jordan’s sister Kaytlin said she confronted the friend on social media, saying a true friend wouldn’t have done that.
Told Kaytlin, ‘Friends don’t push someone from that high so I was p***ed,’
Adding, ‘She pretty much said that she was sorry for doing it and she wouldn’t have done it if she knew the outcome of it and that she knows it was an absurd thing to do.
‘I think the girl that pushed her should have some sort of consequence because you won’t learn your lesson if you think you can could do that again and think it will be fine.’

Do we need to get a petition started or have protests to have Taylor Smith indicted & prosecuted? At the very least that is felony assault and felony battery along with criminal negligence!

Ashley Mahree, the woman who posted the clip to YouTube, also said she believes Smith should go to jail.
‘This looks to be almost criminal… this could have easily taken a life,’ Mahree wrote in the YouTube description.
‘I think this girl needs to be held accountable in some way.’
Clark County Fire Chief Ben Peeler confirmed it is illegal to jump from the bridge and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the incident.
Kristie has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for her niece’s rising medical expenses.
