Nakia Venant had started a livestream — reportedly on Facebook Live — when she fashioned a noose out of a scarf and hanged herself from the bathroom door of her Miami area home just after 3 a.m., the state’s Department of Children and Families said in a brief incident report.
Efforts to save the girl were thwarted by a series of accidents after a friend reported the two-hour livestream to police and provided them with the wrong Miami address, the Miami Herald reported.
Emergency workers rushed to the wrong house and learned of Nakia’s address — where they later found her hanging in the bathroom as her foster parents slept.
The girl was rushed to Jackson North Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
