Horrifying video shows Washington girl nearly die after woman pushes her off a bridge at swimming hole

Published

A 16-year-old Washington state girl was nearly killed after a woman pushed her off a bridge at a swimming hole, reports The Daily News of Longview.

Jordan Holgerson was at a swimming hole on the East Fork of the Lewis River, between Seattle and Portland, Oregon. There, she stood atop a tall bridge and thought about jumping. When she didn’t jump, a woman behind her decided to shove her without warning.

Holgerson lets out a blood-curdling scream as she plummets off the ledge with her body splayed out.

The girl’s mother, Genelle Holgerson, said that they know the name of the woman who shoved her daughter and that she was “apparently impatient or upset that Jordan did not jump off the bridge on her own.”

A surgeon said she was lucky to survive with broken ribs and a punctured lung.

“When you fall three times your height, 50 percent of people will die. That’s usually about 25 feet,” the surgeon said. “When you’re falling from (60 feet), that’s like falling on concrete. She could have broken her neck, she could have been a quadriplegic.”

They worked so hard to make it something really big and special but had one problem - almost nobody showed up. “The Media admits low turnout for anti-Trump rallies ...saying enough. Democrat voters want to hear the politicians talking about issues. This is a huge distraction and will only help Donald Trump get elected. 'Greatest President since Ronald Reagan' said a counter-protester. LehighValleyLive."

Trump’s first term: hits and misses

Published

on

"Promises made, promises kept," goes one of President Donald Trump's main 2020 reelection slogans. Is that true?

Here are some of the key policy hits and misses -- comparing his accomplishments to his promises -- from a tumultuous first term.

- HITS -

Economy:

The economy will be Trump's major selling point.

GDP grew 3.1 percent in the first quarter of 2019 and the last recession was a decade ago. Unemployment is at a 50-year low of 3.6 percent.

Trump's frequent claim that the economy is probably "the best" in US history is an exaggeration, though.

Economists see growing dangers, including exploding government debt and growing backlash from Trump's aggressive trade policies, especially with China.

The racist roots of American policing

Published

on

Outrage over racial profiling and the killing of African Americans by police officers and vigilantes in recent years helped give rise to the Black Lives Matter movement.

But tensions between the police and black communities are nothing new.

There are many precedents to the Ferguson, Missouri protests that ushered in the Black Lives Matter movement. Those protests erupted in 2014 after a police officer shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown; the officer was subsequently not indicted.
