A bunch of kids are there including 16 year old girl and her 18 year old close female friend. The 16 year old is waiting to jump. Another friend starts a countdown. The 16 year old says, "no, don't count down." The 18 year old friend pushes the 16 year old of the bridge. She does a belly flop and breaks 5 ribs and has a number of other injuries.
At first, 16 year old is upset, but says it was an accident. Yesterday, 16 year old says she wants 18 year old to go to jail. The 18 year old spoke this morning. Prosecutors will decide today whether to file charges.
I don't know what the hell you do about this case. I don't think there was any intent to harm. The girls are/were apparently very close. Seems more appropriate for a civil judgment. Then again, it was a serious act and resulting in serious injuries. I might feel differently if the injuries were permanent.
