This is the woman who almost killed her friend by pushing her off a 18m bridge.

Jordan Holgerson, 16, suffered five broken ribs and a punctured lung when she was shoved into Moulton Falls on the Lewis River in Yacolt, Washington last week.

The pusher was her friend, 18-year-old Taylor Smith, family members confirmed to Dailymail.com.

The moment Jordan Holgerson was pushed was captured on video.

Her Facebook page says she works at Dutch Bros Coffee, although sources say she is unemployed and lives with her grandmother.

A source close to the family told The 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 DailyMail.com, Jordan's aunt Kristie Morgan said on Friday "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.

The teenager spoke out from hospital on Thursday after the shocking footage went viral.

"I could have died, easily," she told reporters.

Her mother Genelle is taking "amazing care of her", according to Kristie.

"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 suffered five cracked ribs, a bruised esophagus, an injured trachea, air bubbles in her chest and a punctured lung.

"She is lucky she is not paralysed or dead," her mother told Thoroughbred Daily News.

Jordan said she may have "blacked out" middair, but was aware and awake when she hit the water.

Someone immediately swam out to rescue the teen after she hit the water and rushed her to PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Centre in Vancouver, Washington.

The terrifying ordeal was captured on video as Jordan stood on the 60-foot high ledge with her friends gathered behind her.

"No, I won't go in," Jordan can be heard telling her friends as they try to pressure her to jump off the bridge.

She tells her friends "no" a second time in the video, but the group still rallies to get her to leap. Then, suddenly, one man asks "Ready?" and a female friend is seen shoving Jordan off the bridge.

The teen plunges into the water below and lands with a horrifying thud as her friends gasped.

"Oh, that's so f****d," someone can be heard saying off-camera.

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 woman 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."

Jordan's sister Kaytlin said she confronted the friend on social media, saying a true friend wouldn't have done that.

"Friends don't push someone from that high so I was p***ed," Kaytlin said.

'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."

Ashley Mahree, the woman who posted the shocking clip to YouTube, also said she believes the woman who pushed Jordan 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.
