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.

  1. o my gosh thats so sad this is the second girl on the news who broadcasted her suicide . is this becoming a norm now to broadcast your suicide on facebook live? i hope this does not continue cause if so they might move this feature

    • I was thinking the same thing. People are gonna start using FB live for too many horrible things. We were OK without the live. So they should just remove it.
