The 18-year-old woman who was filmed pushing her teenage friend off a 60-foot bridge says she 'feels bad' about the horrific ordeal as prosecutors reveal she may be charged.

Jordan Holgerson, 16, suffered five broken ribs and a punctured lung when she was shoved off Washington state's Moulton Falls Bridge on August 7 by her friend Taylor Smith.

Taylor told NBC she 'feels really about what happened' and that she has 'apologized several times'. Jordan confirmed she had received a text message apology from her friend.

It comes as the Clark County Sheriff's Office said it has now finished its investigation and has forwarded the case to the prosecutor's office for 'appropriate charging'.

Authorities said Taylor has been cooperating with the investigation.

The injured teenager is now recovering at home from her injuries which included five cracked ribs, a bruised esophagus, an injured trachea, air bubbles in her chest and a punctured lung.

Doctors have said the water would have been 'like concrete' given the distance of her fall and expect it may take months for Jordan to completely heal.

Footage of the shove quickly went viral and showed Jordan standing on top of the bridge with a group of friends gathered behind her.

'No, I won't go in,' Jordan told her friends as they tried to pressure her to jump off the bridge.

She could be heard saying 'no' a second time before Taylor suddenly shoved her.

A horrifying thud could be heard as Jordan hit the water as someone off camera said: 'Oh, that's so f****d'.

In an interview from hospital, Jordan said she thought she might have 'blacked out' midair, but was definitely aware and awake when she hit the water.

'I could have died, easily,' she told reporters two days after the incident.

The woman who originally posted the video online, Ashley Mahree, called for Taylor to be held accountable.

'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.'

It comes as friends claimed Taylor had not shown any remorse.

Jordan could be heard repeatedly saying 'no' before Taylor suddenly shoved her from the bridge.

'Taylor has been going out as if nothing happened,' a family friend told The Sun. 'Taylor hasn't been to visit Jordan to see if she is okay. She clearly doesn't care.'

Instagram photos show Smith partying at Clark County Fair just days after the incident.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, Jordan's aunt Kristie Morgan revealed the injured teenager had 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,' she 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.
