Girl, 16, Suffers Broken Ribs After Being Pushed Off Bridge in Dramatic Video

A 16-year-old girl sustained multiple injuries when she fell dozens of feet from a bridge after being unexpectedly pushed by a friend, and the incident has now sparked a police investigation, PEOPLE confirms.

In footage published by multiple outlets including KATU and Today, Jordan Holgerson is shown standing along a ledge of a bridge at Moulton Falls in Yacolt, Washington. The KATU video shows Jordan telling her group of friends, “No, I won’t go in,” as they pressure her to jump into the river nearly 60 feet below.

Yet, Jordan’s friends continue to press her in the video, and after she declines to jump once again, an unidentified woman is seen shoving Jordan while her back is turned. The push caused her to fall off the bridge.

A few seconds later, the high school student hit the water with a loud smack that can be heard in the video.

“I have five broken ribs, air bubbles in my chest, and I have a punctured lung,” Jordan told KGW8 from PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, where she is recovering.

Sgt. Brent Waddell, a spokesman for the Clark County Sheriff’s Department, tells PEOPLE there is an ongoing investigation into the incident.

Jordan told KGW8 that she likely lost consciousness for a moment before hitting the water.

“In midair, I think I might’ve blacked out,” she said. “I was awake and aware when I hit the water.”

After plunging into the river, Jordan said someone nearby jumped into the water to retrieve her, and she was then transported to the hospital.

The original video of the incident, which was posted to YouTube, was removed after it went viral.

Jordan’s mother, Genelle Holgerson, told the Thoroughbred Daily News that her daughter is still in pain and is “very tired,” and they don’t know how long she will remain in the hospital. But the family feels fortunate Jordan’s injuries weren’t as severe as they easily could have been.

“She is lucky she is not paralyzed or dead,” her mom added to Thoroughbred Daily. “We’re lucky she is going to recover and not have permanent injuries.”

“I’m in a lot of pain without medication,” Jordan told Today in an interview that aired Friday.

Genelle said the family knows the identity of the friend who pushed Jordan, and is calling for her to turn herself in.

“I’m very upset with her,” she told Thoroughbred Daily. “She is an adult, and I’m sure she should have known better,” Genelle told the outlet. “She could have killed my daughter.”

Oops! Sonja Morgan Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction During Luann de Lesseps’ Cabaret Show

Sonja Morgan gave the audience at New York City venue Feinstein’s/54 Below an extra show on Thursday night, when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her high-energy performance.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 54, had joined fellow New York City Housewife Luann de Lesseps on stage for her #CountessAndFriends cabaret program, collaborating on de Lesseps’ tune “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

It was a highlight of de Lesseps’ two-hour show:  The crowd quickly jumping to their feet when Morgan emerged from the audience in a halter-top, red silk wrap dress (which she had also worn during a Valentine’s Day trip to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen).

But toward the end of the song — as fellow Housewives Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer sang and clapped along — Mogan’s dress unwrapped, exposing her backside to the packed house.

Ever the professional, Morgan didn’t miss a beat in her performance. She powered through, still singing while turning to get an audience member’s help tying her dress back up before finally securing it herself.

Morgan’s slip was the only hiccup of the night, which opened with de Lesspes singing The Beatles’ 1967 hit “With a Little Help from My Friends” before transitioning into songs like “Almost Like Being in Love” and “L.O.V.E.”

The show, directed by Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch, also included performances by Tony winner Laura BenantiSaturday Night Live star Rachel Dratch, Patti Cake$ ‘s Bridget Everett, the Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears and Broadway stars Tony Yazbeck, Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Natalie Joy Johnson.

De Lesspes first performed the #CountessAndFriends show in February. She will return to Feinstien’s/54 Below with the program and a slew of special guests later this spring.

It’s been a tough few months for de Lesseps, who was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida, on Christmas Eve and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty to the charges, with a hearing set for April).

The mother of two married ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach last New Year’s Eve before their divorce seven months later. Following her Dec. 24 arrest, the reality star checked herself into an alcohol treatment facility.

“Obviously it was a really bad night for me and something I am not proud of,” de Lesseps told The New York Times in February about the incident.

“I’m trying to keep it light while also taking it seriously,” she added about the cabaret show. “The important thing is to not take yourself so damn seriously. I always think, ‘I can survive this if I keep on moving.’ ”

The Real Housewives of New York City’s 10th anniversary season premieres April 4 (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
