20-year-old Girl Has To Live On Wheelchair Forever After Her “Jealous” Friend Threw Her 25ft From Bridge


When the girl was hurled 25 feet off a bridge by a “jealous” friend, she now has to use a wheelchair forever, but she said “it’s made her a better person.”

Emily Holliday, 20, suffered catastrophic injuries while she was walking home after a night in Solihull, Birmingham, with friends in September 2018.

As Emily and her friends approached a canal bridge, a 17-year-old friend acted irrationally and jealously toward her – accusing her of cheating on her boyfriend. The boy suddenly snatched her up and threw her over the side of the bridge – and Emily plummeted to the ground 25ft below, landing on the canal path. On impact, Emily claims she heard a ‘massive crack’ from her spine and says she remembers every ‘agonizing’ second of the fall. She was immediately taken to Birmingham Hospital, West Midlands.

At that time, she received the devastating news that her spinal cord had been severed and she would never walk again.

I remember the moment he threw me, then landing and hearing a huge ‘crack’. I couldn’t feel anything, but I knew it wasn’t good. “When I awoke, doctors told me I would never walk again.” Emily said.

As a result, the teen admitted to wounding and was sentenced to a two-year youth rehabilitation order, which avoided incarceration.

Emily shares that she was disappointed and didn’t think it was fair that he completely changed her life as a result of this punishment

“I lost everything – I no longer have a social life. But I feel so fortunate to be here. I was given a second chance at life.” she said.

Fortunately, the girl still struggles with daily pain – but remains positive and hopeful.

She shared her story on Tik Tok and inspires others. 3.5 million people watched her video.
