Mahree said the girl is currently in the hospital.
She suffered broken ribs a lung injury and several abrasions as a result, according to KATU 2.
‘This looks to be almost criminal… this could have easily taken a life, and I think this girl needs to be held accountable in some way. The person that pushed her should go to jail,’ Mahree said in the YouTube description.

The friend who pushed her has been identified, but her name was not published.
The mother of the girl who was pushed told KATU: ‘My daughter’s gonna have a long road to recovery.
‘I think that she should probably just turn herself in, realize what she did wrong. This is not okay… she could have killed my daughter.’
Clark County Fire Chief Ben Peeler confirmed it is illegal to jump from the bridge.
The teen girl is still in the hospital. Her mother said she has ‘a long road to recovery’
