  • She could have been crippled for life… no question. Broken back, broken neck, death. I've jumped off a similar height and it is serious business.

  • Cecilia Ramirez says:

    EXACTLY, TELL HER JORDAN, NEVER ASKED TO PUSH U OFF THAT BRIDGE!!!, Jordan is so pretty her friend was just jealous.

  • Can I please just point some things out:
    1. What is a group of 16 year olds doing alone in a forest in bikinis. In other words, they went there specifically TO jump
    2. Why was Jordan standing in the edge? There is no doubt about it that something would happen and she would fall anyways
    3. WHAT KIND OF FRIEND WOULD "MAYBE" SUE HER OTHER FRIEND!!!

  • Roseanne Blades says:

    I dont think people should get away with that type of stuff. I get angry at kids who passively aggressive do stuff that's irresponsible like this little girl did. I'm glad she got into trouble. Its good she said whatever the prosecutors said was appropriate. Sometimes hard lessons are the best medicine. 🙂

  • The fat girl who pushed her down needs to thrown in jail off from a bridge. The fat girl was just envious. Disgusting. Disgusting.

  • A stupid decision can cause someone there life !Friends dont make those kinda mistakes!!Friends look out for each other!!

  • Elizabeth Fritch says:

    I am so proud of her for being an adult about it, saying that the aggressor should pay for her consequences but doesn't seem to harbor any ill will towards her.

  • Sumanyu Sharma says:

    Damm, My friend pushed me on to a wall and I got over 10 stitches but his mother was a doctor so she stiched me up and we've been best friend ever since 😂😂

  • MUST SUE!! Taylor's family SHOULD pay for ALL medical expenses incurred due to her evil act to Jordan.
    Jordan was OBVIOUSLY scared B4 she got pushed…; she was shaking a bit n the evil one still gave the full-forced aggressive push. It looked as if she was pushing her worse enemy or sth. SHAME! Justice needs to be served.

  • shawna jackson says:

    Did you not watch and listen to the video bud?? I never heard her ask for a push. Obviously her dumb friend is lying. That friend is no friend. I want to see the remaining part of the video.

  • Erik Dominguez says:

    This is the world we live in where friends do things your enemies would rather do. Who needs enemies when you got friends like these.

  • Angellos Malefakis says:

    First and foremost why are you on the ledge of the bridge? She is NOT answering the basic question. If you are on the ledge, you are ARE as a matter of fact planning to jump off the bridge. People don't go on the edge of the bridge for the fun of it. However, someone pushing you is a who different story. Thus, honesty and integrity are NOT a part of your vocabulary.

  • This so called “pushed girl” was clearly not her friend. It was an accident for crying out loud!! & she says she wants her friend in jail for a while not taking into account that her friend has to attend school and stuff.. Jordan’s friends should watch out coz they cud go to jail for something as petty as not picking her calls 😂😂😂 this girl is something else!!!!!

  • Maurice Whitehurst says:

    "I can't imagine me asking her to push me." is not the same as "I did not ask her to push me." However, asserting she lied is saying, "I did not ask her to push me.". So which one is true?

  • Maurice Whitehurst says:

    Asking a victim what the punishment should be is always going to get a harsh penalty that is why unbiased jurist are asked.

  • Emily Trinidad says:

    If you watch the full video Jordan said “no” when Taylor told her to she was going to push her. She was lying in her statement and there’s clear evidence.

  • She was obviously originally planning to jump. She chickened out and her friend thought she'd help push her to be brave… physically. Not a smart call, but I know a lot of my friends would have done the same.. and I certainly wouldn't have sent them to jail over it. It didn't seem meant to be mean. If she hadn't wanted to jump at all, she wouldn't have been on the ledge

  • Lord of the belts: The return of the KING says:

    They should have thrown the book more at the other teen, while the other teen was dumb and didn't know the injuries that it would cause…….still pushing someone off an 18m ledge has to have some kind of consequence. They should have send her to jail for at least a year, yet apparently she only spent a few days in jail.
    It's all pretty stupid, Jordan here also needs to now make sure to only make real friends. Someone who pushes you off a ledge like that is hardly a real friend who cares about you as a person.

  • I don’t think the girl meant to hurt her but she was definitely lying. She probably thought it was playful but didn’t realize her friend would get hurt.

  • Goofing around, having fun, that's what kids do??

    Lady, not 60ft off a side of a bridge!! Dumbest question of the day.

  • Dude BrothermanGaming says:

    When the victim was like “ I just wanted to put her away for a little bit. “ The blonde news cast lady got a little snappy lol people need to choose their friends wisely some try to push you off bridges and some try to get you to serve jail time. #friendshipgoals

  • There was a sign saying "no jumping or diving". It's a sad thing that this happened to her but why is no one pointing that out?

  • Why did it feel like the interviewers were trying to downplay the situation? Or at least that the woman was? The fact that they're friends doesn't change what Taylor did. If I was friends with someone, or even if I didn't know them at all, I would hope to GOD they'd know not to push me off of a bridge. Yes, it's a mistake, but it's a mistake that could've killed her. She was physically injured and could very well suffer emotionally as well.

  • I believe that girl and her parents should be held 100% responsible for all of the medical expenses incurred plus for the pain and suffering she's endured on top of it. And I hope someone started a go fund me page for her too.

  • blueberries rasberries says:

    Everyone of them were wrong. The one who fell or pushed was "ready" to fall down in her dress up and position. They were all IDIOTS for being in the dangerous daring situation to be funny/cool. So the one who push was extended in their stupid daring game. These kids lack common sense. Daring/stupid act by teenagers are not common in Asia. We hate nonsense and stupidity.

  • Did these people watch the video. Taylor said "I'm going to push you" and Jordan said "NO". So yes, Taylor was lying.

  • swapnil suryawanshi says:

    No offense ,……….But you didnt wnt to do it u shldnt hve gone there………..all friends will do the same…………ask for medical help…….but dont sue her…………its not called frndship……..

  • Sorry to say this, I don't see any friendship between this two,put her away,that's just bad coming from a friend,if you have ever had a real friendship with someone, you will never say that to a friend…no hating please

  • Meghan Christine says:

    My friends and I have Cliff jumped and they were the first ones to say "Meg if you don't want to do this DON'T." They would absolutely never PUSH me, they'd help me get off the cliff. That girl didn't deserve the push nor those questions from the quacky news crew!

  • My God! How can that lady have so many dumb questions in such a short interview? Maybe her kids will be pushed in oncoming traffic; barely survive; and we can chalk it up to kids just goofing off.

  • Robert Archuleta says:

    The victim and her so called friend who pushed her other so called friend are both idiots. For one standing on the bridge to jump off. Wtf. Were u thinking anyways. If u were going to jump than jump. Than the one that pushed her, another clueless one. To even think about pushing someone off a high bridge. The victim is talking in the interview. U sound u would do something so stupid. Stay away from Jordan she'll back stab u. Not a good friend. Keep clear.

  • One year in jail is not enough. 10 yrs would be better, she'll hurt someone else child again, and lied and smirk smile in interviews. No one would suffer this stupidity jokes anymore. No friends push friends off the bridge, period. 😒😾

  • It’s very sad that other people just here to make kind of rude comments, I feel like now in days there is no compassion for others.

  • I don’t think you need any witnesses in this situation, because everything it’s been recorded, it’s so clear that she didn’t wanna jump , it’s so clear I don’t understand why some people are saying that they need witnesses.

  • michael Kazz says:

    She should have been charged with Attempted Murder. And, she should have been convicted for attempted murder.

  • Lee Carrillo says:

    The girl that pushed hers is reckless and dumb and inexperienced. A person has to jump in a relaxed posture no minimize the chance of injury. You could see her flopping through the air because she was in panic-mode and hit the water very, very hard. Poor young lady.

  • Javier Tabora says:

    You could tell she pushed her with such hate … She probably been hating on Jordan on a low all this time as a fake friend .. too bad she only received 2 days in jail what a privilege ..

  • I want Taylor to go to jail maximum sentence as well. Send the message loud in clear that we will not accept so called accidents, when it really is attempted manslaughter or ends up killing the person….

  • She was not thinking straight at the moment.. She was just stupid and now regrets what she did. Hoping she would forgive her but that's not gonna happen.

  • Khurram Sarwar says:

    For one I believe first the girl who pushed her should get in severe trouble. Also everyone else including the girl who was pushed should get in trouble for violating a no diving sign and trespassing.

  • Gera Scott Chandler says:

    If the bridge was lower and much closer to the water, Jordan would have been fine, but being pushed off a bridge like that one……. Too dangerous.

  • The female interviewer seems to be condoning the actions of the girl who pushed the victim off the bridge. Very strange.
